gaudier brzeska

Book cover
Written by one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, this is a documented example of an artist determined to go against the poverty and obscurity to create his passion in art. Henri Gaudier, killed in WWI, who had created a lot of works at an age when most people were still trying to understand what to do in life, probably would have fallen from existence completely if it was not for the tireless promotions done by Ezra Pound. Pound's quest in bringing to light the few of worthy talent who would otherwise be lost in the sludge of mediocracy is an example of the "rather than looking at the master's finger, look at what the finger points at" belief by following in example rather than observing what is shown. Instead of fawning over the man brought to the attention of the world of art, you are convinced to become aware of those who have yet to be recognized.
