Gaudier-Brzeska Disputing the Earth at RWA

About

Early stone-age man disputed the earth with animals’  - Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, 1914

In his short life, French artist Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (1891-1915) created an astonishing range of animal-inspired artworks. Gaudier-Brzeska: Disputing the Earth pays new attention to Gaudier’s versatility as an animal artist and the special significance that the animal kingdom held for him.

Including works as varied as wallpaper designs, sculptures and sketches, the show will be grouped according to the places where Gaudier found his subjects – zoo, park, wilderness. Placed alongside one another, this incredible collection of artworks will demonstrate Gaudier's extraordinary stylistic variety, and the extent to which his abstract work was rooted in the observation of nature. 

Gaudier-Brzeska has a special connection to Bristol and the region. He spent two years in the south west, sketching at the RWA and at Bristol Zoo.

This exhibition brings Gaudier-Brzeska's sculptures and drawings back to Bristol, a century after he first explored the city, and establishes his significance as an animal artist.
