Grace and Speed: The Birds of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska

This exhibition, curated collaboratively by the Circuit group, explores Henri Gaudier-Brzeska’s constantly changing drawing styles through a selection of his sketches of birds. Over the course of three months, we have selected works from the collection at Kettle’s Yard that provide an insight into Gaudier-Brzeska’s evolving style – from a realistic and naturalistic depiction to abstract form, with heightened emphasis on the shapes created by the movement of the pen across the paper.

These drawings reflect the artist’s personality, his artistic development and the progression of the age. Gaudier-Brzeska aligned himself with the avant-garde Vorticist group in London. Many of its members responded to the increasing dominance of machines within their environment by trying to capture this movement within a static image.

The display is in Helen’s bedroom in the Kettle’s Yard House, you can ask a Visitor Assistant to direct you.
