Vorticists: rebel artists in London and New York


From Janaury the 29th 2011 up to the middle of May (15th), Peggy Guggenheim Collection exposes more than 100 works of of the so called “Vorticists“, members of a movements born at the begginning of the 20th century which was not as popular as italian futurism and french cubism. The main idea of Vorticism was merge abstractism with mechanical shapes, with a sort of energy movement provided by the vortex concept. Main exponent of this period was, without any doubt, the russian artist Vassilij Kandinskij, but unfortunately his works won’t be shown during this exposition; anycase it will be possible to admire masterpieces of  Percy Wyndham Lewis, Edward Wadsworth and Henri Gaudier-Brzeska.
