Helen Saunders

Helen Saunders is another artist who was part of the vorticist movement. An interesting thing about the movement is that there was a significant number of female artists, even though the group of the artists themselves was small. Saunders’ work has been hard to find because like many of the art that was created during the Vorticism movement, the art work has either been lost or destroyed. She was an active member of the movement and contributed to their magazine Blast by writing poetry and providing imagery. Like some of the women in the movement, Saunders was one of Wyndham Lewis (who was one of the founders of the vorticism movement)After 1920 she changed to a more naturalistic style. A closer look at her work shows the suggestion of arms and legs.
