Percy Wyndham Lewis was very much the bad man of twentieth-century British art and letters, the self-styled rebel and tyro. Born of an American father and a British mother, he studied at the Slade. He went on to travel widely in Europe, though he focused more seriously on his writing. Inspired by the Post-Impressionist exhibition in 1910, he became a founder member of the Camden Town Group in 1911 and the London Group in 1913.
