Wyndham Lewis (1882–1957), arguably the most significant British artist-writer of the 20th century, pioneered cutting-edge modernism in Britain before World War I, helping to turn London into an international vortex of creative activity. Yet he is unknown to many general readers and misunderstood by many specialists. Extensively illustrated, this is the first introduction to explore his work as both a writer and a painter, and to discuss his ideas about art, life, and politics.
