Christopher Richard Wynne Nevinson is one of the most famous artists of the First World War, as well as landscape painter, etcher and lithographer. Inspired by the work of the Welsh etcher Augustus Edwin John, CRW Nevinson attended the art school at University College London, where he met contemporaries such as portrait artist Mark Gertler , engraver Adrian Allinson, and painter and decorative artist Dora Carrington . Nevinson was also interested in early Renaissance art at the time. From the well-known art professor Henry Tonks Nevinson got to hear no positive words, which led to a lifelong hostility of the two. For Nevinson he went to Paris to the prestigious Académie Julian, in the city he met Pablo Picasso and Vladimir Lenin, shared a studio with the great Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani and also met the Italian futurists Filippo Tommaso Marinetti and Gino Severini , With Marinetti he also wrote and published manifestoes for an English Futurism.

When World War I broke out, Nevinson worked as a volunteer and later as an ambulance driver for the Red Cross, serving wounded French soldiers. His works "The Doctor" and "La Patrie" are reminiscent of this time. At the London Group Exhibition in 1915, he participated with four artworks, his futuristic painting "Returning to the Trenches" was highly praised. In the same year he also married Kathleen Knowlman. His wartime and hospital experience led Nevinson 1916 to exhibit "La Mitrailleuse" at the Allied Artists Association and to paint pictures like "A Taube". The latter shows a child killed by a German bomb known as a dove. A year later, he was made by a British war agency to the official war painter, he visited, among other things, the Western Front. Back in England, he wrote numerous lithographs about aircraft construction and presented his war works (also in New York), which he had kept mainly in brown and dark green. Nevinson was also known for his exaggerations, as well as his simultaneously depressed and temperamental nature - a critic even defined him as one of the most hated British artists. Even his memoirs are described as partially inaccurate.

During the Second World War, Nevinson worked for the Royal Air Force, making pictures of the Air War, one of which was given as a gift to Winston Churchill and still hanging on Downing Street. After a stroke, his right hand was paralyzed and he managed to paint with his left. In his year of death, he exhibited works at the Royal Academy, eventually dying a few months later. © Meisterdrucke
