Wyndham Lewis: Life, Art, War

 

Lewis was a radical force in twentieth century British art and literature. His work covers a dark and violent period in history, from the First World War to the nuclear age.

After serving on the Western Front until 1917, Lewis was appointed as an official war artist for both the Canadian and British governments.
