Edward Wadsworth

Edward Wadsworth was an English painter who was one of the artist in the vorticist movement. He raised in an industrial environment and he had an interest with the machine, which was shown through some of his work. He was also interested in the new vision of the world opened up by air travel. Most of his work during the vorticist movement has been lost, but from the woodcuts from his extended series show he often looked down on northern industrial centres from far above.
