Gaudier-Brzeska: Disputing the Earth



‘Early stone-age man disputed the earth with animals’ - Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, 1914 In his short life, French artist Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (1891-1915) created an astonishing range of animal-inspired artworks. Gaudier-Brzeska: Disputing the Earth pays new attention to Gaudier’s versatility as an animal artist and the special significance that the animal kingdom held for him. Including works as varied as wallpaper designs, sculptures and sketches, the show will be grouped according to the places where Gaudier found his subjects – zoo, park, wilderness. Placed alongside one another, this incredible collection of artworks will demonstrate Gaudier's extraordinary stylistic variety, and the extent to which his abstract work was rooted in the observation of nature.
