Marking 100 years since Lewis (1882–1957) was first commissioned as an official war artist, this exhibition will comprise of more than 160 artworks, books, journals and pamphlets from major public and private, national and international collections. This will be IWM’s largest visual arts exhibition to date and will also mark 60 years since Wyndham Lewis’s death. 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. ‘Wyndham Lewis: Life, Art, War’ will be presented through key themes including: The Man of the World, Beyond Action and Reaction, The Enemy, Self-Condemned and Sea Mists. Find out more about the Wyndham Lewis exhibition from the IWM’s website.
