Gaudier-Brzeska : life and art by Evelyn Silber( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After a short, turbulent life in France, Germany and Britain, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska was killed in the trenches in 1915 at the age of twenty-three. A protege of Ezra Pound and a fellow champion of Vorticism, he was a member of the legendary pre-war London circle that included Wyndham Lewis, Jacob Epstein and Roger Fry, and by the time of his death he had already produced a body of work that established him as one of the key figures of twentieth-century sculpture." "A pioneering direct carver, his bold use of semi-abstract sculptural forms and organic dynamism were an acknowledged influence on Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. He was also a brilliant draughtsman and his succinct, candid drawings have been as sought after as his sculpture." "Gaudier-Brzeska: Life and Art is the first major study of his life and work. Based on extensive research and incorporating the first catalogue raisonne of his sculpture, it is accompanied by over 100 photographs taken specially for the book by David Finn."--Jacket
Wild thing : Epstein, Gaudier-Brzeska, Gill by Richard Cork( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Epstein, Gill and Gaudier-Brzeska were pioneers of modern Bristish sculpture. In a burst of daring creativity before World War I, they revolutionized their field. The three artists produced sculpture whose sexual explicitness and boldness of form shocked contemporary viewers. Examples of their works illustrate this text, including Epstein's robotic masterpiece, 'Rock Drill', Gill's 'Ecstasy' and Gudier-Brzaeska's 'Birds Erect'.--Publisher

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La vie et l'oeuvre de l'artiste français Henri Gaudier-Brzeska est peu connue en France. Les raisons de ce purgatoire résultent probablement de plusieurs facteurs. La décision de Gaudier de s'installer à Londres, où il a vécu les quatre années marquantes de sa carrière (1911-1915), a jeté un voile sur son identité. Le nom étranger qu'il a accolé à son patronyme a certainement brouillé un peu plus encore son image. 0Enfin, cet oubli s'explique par la brièveté de son parcours, interrompu à la fleur de l'âge par la Première Guerre mondiale - destin tragique qui a fait dire à certains historiens de l'art qu'il était un "Rimbaud de l'Art" dont la vie, comme celle du poète, avait "échappé à l'histoire pour entrer dans le Mythe". Dans l'espace anglo-américain, en revanche, Gaudier- Brzeska est connu et reconnu comme l'un des fondateurs du courant d'avant-garde anglais, le vorticisme. 0Très tôt, le poète Ezra Pound voyait dans la mort de Gaudier-Brzeska, sur le champ de bataille d'Artois, le 5 juin 1915, "la plus grande perte que les arts ont subie pendant la guerre". Faut-il rappeler qu'il n'avait pas hésité à s'engager volontairement dans l'Armée française, malgré son antimilitarisme notoire. Depuis 1916, de nombreux ouvrages ont été publiés, en anglais, sur l'histoire personnelle et sur la création de cet artiste.0
