About

Henri Gaudier-Brzeska's career as a sculptor was regrettably short. Born in France in 1891, he was killed in action in 1915 aged just 23. Yet in the three and a half years preceding his departure for the trenches he managed to create a remarkable and innovative body of work. This display presents a selection of some of Gaudier-Brzeska's key sculptures from his Vorticist phase and related drawings. These works arguably represent Gaudier's most significant contribution to the development of a truly modern sculptural language at the beginning of the 20th century. Part of a series of small, focused displays in the exhibition gallery during building work at Kettle's Yard to construct a new Education Wing.
