Henri Gaudier Brzeska’s life

Born 1891; died 1915

A Frenchman by birth, Henri Gaudier spent most of his working life in England. And here, from 1911-1914, whilst living with Sophie Brzeska (whose surname he added to his own name), he developed from an immature artist into one of the most powerful and original artists of his time. An leading exponent of Vortisism and Futurism, his work is powerful and highly regarded.

He was a close friend of Ezra Pound and Jacob Epstein, and one of the leaders of the Vorticist movement. He was killed in battle, having returned to France to fight for his country against the occupying German forces, at Neuville St Vaast. His untimely death was one of the most tragic losses the Arts suffered during World War I.

The full, fascinating story of this enigmatic, passionate artist is told in the two books – Gaudier-Brzeska Artist and Myth as well as Burning to Speak.
