Edward Wadsworth & Percy Wyndham Lewis

Both Edward Wadsworth & Percy Wyndham Lewis also had work exhibited at Leeds Art Gallery.


Edward Wadsworth (29 October 1889 – 21 June 1949) was a an English artist who was interested in vorticism.  He painted in many different ways including tempera, coastal views, abstracts, portraits and still-life.  Edward's work was very unique.  I quite like a lot of Edwards paintings.


Percy Wyndham Lewis (18 November 1882 – 7 March 1957) was also an English painter and he was the co-founder of the vorticism movement.   He was also an author and wrote several novels including 'The Human Age,' a trilogy called 'Childermass' and many more. During World War I he was an Artillery Officer which involved a lot of dangerous work.  He was to register targets and calling down fire from batteries masses. Which explains why a lot of his paintings are based on the first World War.
