Collection: Edward Wadsworth

Edward Wadsworth (1889-1949) was a British painter, printmaker, and war artist known for his involvement in the Vorticist movement, a short-lived but highly influential avant-garde movement that sought to fuse the modernist principles of Cubism and Futurism with a distinctly British sensibility. Wadsworth's abstract, geometric style and his use of industrial themes helped to define the aesthetic of Vorticism and establish him as a key figure in the history of modern British art.
