Wydham Lewis: November 18, 1882 -- March 7, 1957 Distinguished and highly original, Wyndham Lewis was known for his sharp wit and sardonic insight. A modern master of satire, Lewis was born off the coast of Nova Scotia in his English father's yacht on November 18, 1882, and grew up in England with his mother. He was associated with Roger Fry and Ezra Pound on the vorticist magazine, Blast (1914--1915). Lewis served in France in World War I, and his dynamic paintings of war scenes soon gained him wide recognition for his art, now represented in the Tate Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and in the Museum of Modern Art, New York. After the publication of his naturalistic novel Tarr (1918), he became prominent as a writer. His major work of fiction is The Human Age (1955--56). He also wrote Doom of Youth, The Hitler Cult, and The Jews, Are They Human? Lewis died in London on March 7, 1957.
