One of the “Whitechapel Boys”, born in 1890, David Garshen Bomberg was one of the most audacious of the exceptional generation of artists who studied at the Slade School of Fine Art between 1911 and 1913. He devised his own geometric style, influenced by cubism, prior and during the First World War, but never joined the Vorticists. His expressionist style, for which he is best known, evolved in Palestine 1923-1927. He lived in Spain in 1934-1935 and 1953-1957. He received very little recognition during his lifetime except from his students at the Borough Polytechnic where he taught between 1945-1952. It was only after his death in 1957 that he became known as one of best British artists of the 20th century. He is represented in all major museums of the UK and had a Retrospective at the Tate.
