Group X

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A short-lived association of British artists, including some former members of the Vorticist movement, formed in 1919 with the aim of providing a focus for London's avant-garde and an alternative exhibiting venue to that of the London Group. The association, whose name seems to have had no particular significance, held only one exhibition, in 1920, at the Mansard Gallery. Wyndham Lewis, who wrote the introduction to the catalogue, was the leading figure of the group. The other members were Jessica Dismorr, Frank Dobson, Frederick Etchells (see Rebel Art Centre), Charles Ginner, Cuthbert Hamilton (1884–1959), E. McKnight Kauffer, William Roberts, John Turnbull (active 1919), whose paintings of aircraft were highly praised by Ezra Pound, and Edward Wadsworth.
