9 editions published in 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wyndham Lewis could be described as a "single-handed avant-garde movement". An accomplished artist, Lewis found 'An accomplished ed Vorticism', the only English avant-garde movement, and was the author of more than 50 books. In addition he issued manifestoes, edited and published journals and was responsible for a fascinating and strikingly varied body of work that runs from his vorticist, Cubo-futurist and abstract compositions to his most refined portraits. A pioneer of abstraction, war artist, major portraitist, novelist, essayist, editor andcritic, Wyndham Lewis is one of the key figures in European modernism of the first half of the 20th century.

Wyndham Lewis : life, art, war by Richard Slocombe( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until his death in 1957, Wyndham Lewis was a radical force in British art and literature; a modernist 'Man of 1914' and the founder of Britain's only true avant-garde movement, Vorticism. As a master of art and letters he won the plaudits of T S Eliot and Augustus John in his lifetime and inspired a miscellany of fi gures in art, literature and music, from the sculptor Henry Moore to the blues rock experimentalist Captain Beefheart, and pop music pioneer David Bowie. Yet in spite of this impressive cultural pedigree Lewis's reputation has been blighted by his shortlived, ill-judged praise of Hitler in the 1930s. Cast into the cultural wilderness for the second half of the 20th century, Lewis has belatedly undergone a revival of interest. This book takes a look at this intriguing artist and accompanies the first major exhibition of his work in over 40 years at IWM North in Manchester. Exhibition: IWM North, Manchester, England (23.06.2017 - 01.01.2018)
