CRW Nevinson 1889-1946

Born in Hampstead, North London on 13th August 1889, Nevinson studied at the St. Johns Wood School of Art (1907 – 08), before moving to the Slade (1908 to 1912), where he studied under the renowned Professor of Drawing, Henry Tonks. He then studied in Paris at the Academie Julien (1912 – 17) and also studied at the Circle Russe.

In Paris, Nevinson shared a studio with Amedeo Modigliani (1884 – 1920) and became influenced by Cubism. Heavily influenced by the Italian Futurist movement Nevinson drew inspiration from the modern city with it’s new machines and modes of transport. 

Nevinson first exhibited in London in 1910 and became a founder member of the London Group, formerly the Camden Town Group, in 1913, exhibiting with Walter Sickert, Camille Pissarro, Edward Wadsworth, David Bomberg, Sylvia Gosse and Paul Nash. In 1915 the ‘Vorticists’ held their only group show at the Dore Gallery. Developed by Wyndham Lewis from ideas of the Futurists, of whom he was highly critical, the movement included Gaudier Brzeska, Jacob Epstein, William Roberts, David Bomberg and Christopher Nevinson. ... read more
