From Blast to Pop: Aspects of Modern British Art, 1915-1965

This book charts the complex trajectory of modernism in Britain.

From Blast to Pop features works by important British avant-garde artists such as Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, and William Turnbull and explores the period between two defining movements in English Modernism: Vorticism (England's first abstract art movement) and British Pop art of the late 1950s.
