"After a short, turbulent life in France, Germany and Britain, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska was killed in the trenches in 1915 at the age of twenty-three. A protege of Ezra Pound and a fellow champion of Vorticism, he was a member of the legendary pre-war London circle that included Wyndham Lewis, Jacob Epstein and Roger Fry, and by the time of his death he had already produced a body of work that established him as one of the key figures of twentieth-century sculpture. A pioneering direct carver, his bold use of semi-abstract sculptural forms and organic dynamism were an acknowledged influence on Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. He was also a brilliant draughtsman and his succinct, candid drawings have been as sought after as his sculpture." (Front flap)
