The French-born sculptor moved to London in 1911 and worked at the Omega Workshops from 1913. Although his best known work is based on human and animal forms he was involved with Vorticism from the outset and his work was much influenced by machine imagery. He was killed in action while serving with the French army at Neuville-Saint-Vaast.
