C.R.W. Nevinson was one of the most important, colourful, and talked about artists of his generation. In the turbulent days of pre-World War I London, he gained notoriety as England's only Futurist, and during the war he produced some of the most memorable and harrowing images of that conflict. This book focuses attention on Nevinson's dynamic early career, drawing on freshly located archives and on the press of the period to shed new light on the young artist and the power of his progressive paintings.
