Mark­ing

one hun­dred years since Lewis (18 Novem­ber 1882 - 7 March 1957) was first com­mis­sioned as an of­fi­cial war artist in 1917, this largest UK ret­ro­spec­tive of the artist’s work to date will in­clude more than 160 art­works, books, jour­nals and pam­phlets from ma­jor public and pri­vate, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional col­lec­tions. Staged in Im­pe­rial War Mu­se­ums’ cen­te­nary year,

Wyn­d­ham Lewis: Life, Art, War will be IWM’s largest vis­ual arts ex­hi­bi­tion to date. A rad­i­cal force in Bri­tish art and lit­er­a­ture, Lewis was the founder of Bri­tain’s only true avant-garde move­ment, Vor­ti­cism. He was a con­tro­ver­sial fig­ure whose ideas, opin­ions and per­son­al­ity in­spired, en­ticed and re­pelled in equal mea­sure.
