Vorticism was the only British avant-garde movement to make an original contribution to European Modernism. Founded in 1914 by Wyndham Lewis, and christened by Ezra Pound, the movement was a sustained act of aggression against the moribund and moderate Victorianism that Lewis and Pound saw as stifling the artistic energies of the new generation in England.
Vorticism's relatively brief life is successfully captured in this, the first fully-illustrated guide to the movement in English in over 25 years. It includes a chapter by Richard Cork on Vorticist sculpture, other chapters discuss painting, literary Vorticism, women in Vorticism, and Vorticist aesthetics.
