Henri Gaudier-Brzeska

Am reading a book on HG-B by Evelyn Silver and David Finn and came across this sketch that he sent to Edward Wadsworth (he of the ‘Dazzle Ship’ design) from the front line at the end of 1914. 


Titled ‘One of our shells exploding’, he has captured the ferocity of the blast and the beautiful, yet catastrophic patterns the explosion would create.
