Steven HellerThis catalog…provides a valuable look at a movement that Ackley says constituted "a unique and vibrant moment in British modernism." It involved the artists' "personal transformations" of Futurism and Cubism into a singular language that influenced graphic and poster design with its "thrusting, vertiginous or syncopated rhythms of the modern world." And whether it represented a desolate no man's land or an urban landscape, this art for a new, jazzy age was a radical departure from the stylistic stranglehold of Victorianism.
