Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957), Painter and novelist

(Percy) Wyndham Lewis

Sitter in 18 portraits
Artist associated with 39 portraits
Artist and writer and the moving spirit behind Vorticism. Lewis joined up as a gunner in March 1916 but was appointed an official war artist for the Canadians in December 1917 and commissioned shortly afterwards by the British War Memorials Committee. His vast painting, A Battery Shelled (1919, Imperial War Museum), marked a retreat from abstraction in his style but was nevertheless highly controversial.
