Henri Gaudier-Brzeska
Birth: Oct. 4, 1891, France
Death: Jun. 5, 1915, France

French Sculptor and Draughtsman. He became a sculptor in Paris without any training. In 1911, he moved to London with his partner, Sophie Brzeska, and there, he associated with figures such as Wyndham Lewis and Ezra Pound. He became a founder member of the London Group and the following year signed the Vorticist Manifesto. Later, he enlisted in the French Army, and sadly, he was killed in the front. Although his work was ignored during his life-time, he was widely recognized as one of the most important sculptors of his generation. He was admirer of Rodin and his work announces abstract sculpture. Among his works are Tête hiératique d'Ezra Pound, Femme assise (MNAM, Paris), Danseuse en pierre rouge (Tate Gallery, Londres), Cerfs (musée de Chicago), Oiseaux debouts (MOMA, New York). In the village of Neuville-Saint Vaast, there is a Polish memorial, for the Poles that died in action, among them, this famous sculptor.
