Folio Society – Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson

British born futurist artist who was an ambulance driver during the first world war. He aimed to use fururist method to capture scenes of the war, with strong angular shapes forming his compositions. His piece La Mitrailleuse (1915), below, is a really striking image showing a machine gun post. I am particaularly fond of the composition of this piece with the soldiers carmmed into the trench. There is i depth to this image that is very inspiring in terms of my own work, especially with my chosen process of painted paper cut outs. I feel I can apply some of Nevinsons use of perspective in my outcomes.
