Summary

A well-documented book about the French young artist of genius who was killed at the age of 23 in the First World War...

Description

Rediscover the fascinating work of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, the French artist who contributed to the revival of sculpture at the beginning of the 20th century and who fascinated the London art scene at the time of Vorticism, a British variant of Futurism.

The exhibition organized in partnership with the Museum of Fine Arts in Orleans presents around twenty sculptures and forty drawings which belong to the collection of the Centre Pompidou, with explanatory notes and photographs.

First marked by the influence of Rodin, from 1911 the young artist sculpts or models portraits, nudes, animal subjects, decorative pieces and quasi-abstract works, applying an original synthesis between cubism and primitivism. He settles in England between 1911 and 1914 and makes a spectacular entrance on to London's avant-garde art scene. Throughout this period, the artist multiplies the drawing studies for his sculptures, and also produces impressive autonomous drawings which are all powerfully graphic.

Under the supervision of Christian Briend and Doïna Lemny - 2009.
