Self-Portrait Wearing a Cap
(b London, 5 June 1895; d London, 20 Jan. 1980). British painter, chiefly of figure compositions and portraits. After travelling in France and Italy, he worked briefly for the Omega Workshops, then in 1914 joined the Vorticist movement. His style at this time showed his precocious response to French modernism and was close to that of Bomberg in the way he depicted stiff, stylized figures through geometrically simplified forms.
