Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson was an English painter whose formative years as a student were spent at the Slade. His work encompassed Futurist paintings of machine-age London and later bleak paintings of the Great War. By 1919 he had given up Futurism, painting lively interpretations of New York. In later years he concentrated more on pastoral scenes and flower pieces, where a gentler mood prevailed.
