British, 1890-1957. David Bomberg's art was bold and sometimes defiant, much like his personality. Having been expelled from the Slade School of Art in 1913 for his unconvential style and method, Bomberg set out on his own to create avant-garde paintings. Bomberg blended Cubism and Futurism to create fragmented geometric representations of figures and landscapes with a select few colors. This style lasted until World War I. Bomberg fought on the Western Front which profoundly changed him and his outlook of the world. After the War, his style was much more foreboding and sad. It wasn't until many years after the war and a trip to Palestine that Bomberg was able to create more vivacious landscapes in a Post-Impressionist style. Sadly, Bomberg never saw the sucess in his life that he acheived postumously and died in near poverty.
