David Bomberg was the most audacious painter of his generation at the Slade. His treatment of the human figure, in terms of angular, clear-cut forms charged with enormous energy, reveals his determination to bring about a drastic renewal in British painting. With the advent of World War I, everything changed dramatically and his harrowing experiences at the Front brought about a profound transformation in his outlook.
