Description: "Presenting a significant reappraisal of the achievements of celebrated French sculptor Gaudier-Brzeska (1891-1915), who spent most of his brief artistic career in London, this catalogue documents an exhibition of 46 sculptural works and 135 drawings (among them numerous previously unexhibited sheets) that include examples of his early Rodin-influenced compositions as well as many of the totemic abstracted figures that reflect his pioneering role in the British avant garde. A biographical review of Gaudier-Brzeska's turbulent life augments six critical essays that include examinations of the artist's distinctive sculptural oeuvre and draughtsmanship; an analysis of the influence of African sculpture on his stylistic development; discussions of his involvement in the Vorticist movement and his links to the Bloomsbury group; and a summary of the divergent critical reception of his work."--with a bonus offer.
