I am intrigued by Wyndham Lewis; the founder of the Vorticism movement of the early 1910s in the UK. It’s been less than 24 hours since I discovered the art and writings of this fine man, yet I am thoroughly fascinated. I have always been taken by the exhuberant Italian Futurism movement of those times, and Mr. Lewis’ adventures seem like the UK’s answer to those Futurist claims. In addition to being a superb artist, Lewis also wrote several books and literary pieces. More on Wyndham Lewis in a future IEDEI post.
