Beatific

Some more Vorticist linocuts for you- words I didn't think I'd end up typing when I started this blog. The one above is Henri Gaudier-Brzeska's The Wrestlers (looks like it should be easy to do, probably very difficult. Maybe I should try).


Second, E McKnight Kauffer's Flight- he went on to advertising and to produce posters for the London Underground.


Third, Claude Flight's Revolution- fucking brilliant (and yes, that's art criticism).



Finally Lill Tschudi's Tour De Suisse, which isn't really done justice to in this jpeg.

Today's music- some more slightly barking nu-disco from my current faves Glass Candy; good enough to melt the snow and bring the sun out.

Bloody hell! I turn my back for 5 minutes and you've turned your blog into the Tate. I like your taste in art. I like also your snappy synopsis.

Succinct and to the point--the best kind of art criticism.
