Vortex Lewis lived here

Vortex founder painter Lewis lived here.

Location: 61 Palace Gardens Terrace, Kensington

Description: Canadian-born painter and writer Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957) lived here between 1923 and 1926.

This was when he was best known for his linear portraits, and he collaborated with neighbour Ezra Pound after becoming disenchanted with mainstream art in London. With Ezra he founded the first British modernist movement, The Vortex.

They published a fierce critical art magazine called BLAST! It sent shockwaves through the artistic establishment in Bloomsbury, setting off a feud of sorts. He once claimed that Roger Fry and Clive Bell (Bloomsbury Group) were spying on him from the roof here.

He became prolific here I work incessantly, I am never in bed before 2, or often later. he wrote in a letter to T.S. Eliot from this house. Eliot called him the most fascinating personality of our time.
