Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (1891-1915 ) was a French sculptor who developed a rough hewn, primitive style of direct carving.Henri Gaudier was born in St. Jean de Braye near Orleans. In 1910 he moved to London to become an artist, even though he had no formal training. With him came Sophie Brzeska, a Polish writer over twice his age whom he had met at the Bibliotheque St. Genevieve in Paris, and with whom he began an intense symbiotic relationship, annexing her surname although they never married.   more from wikipedia »
