Review by haled
Readable group biography which brings home the fertility of the pre First World War period and the influence of the war on the young artists searching for their voice at the beginning of the 20th century. An important reminder of the horror of war. My only concern is that none of the individuals are entirely sympathetic characters and perhaps sometimes it is better not to know too much about those whose work one admires. The perils of biography!
