This book offers the first up-to-date overview and critical assessment of The London Group's turbulent early history and an equally important period in British art. Formed in 1913 from an amalgamation of the Camden Town Group and the so-called 'English Cubists' (later Vorticists), The London Group exploded onto the British art scene as a radical alternative to the Royal Academy and the art establishment. Its controversial early years reflect the upheavals associated with the introduction of British modernism and the experimental work of many of its early members (who included David Bomberg, Jacob Epstein, Roger Fry, Mark Gertler, Percy Wyndham Lewis, Paul Nash, C R W Nevinson, Walter Sickert and Edward Wadsworth).
