A concise survey of the life and work of Vorticist artist-poet Helen Saunders. Her work is currently on display in the ‘Radical Women’ exhibition at Pallant House Gallery.

‘Since Saunders’ early work earned her a respected place in experimental circles, the gathering obscurity of her later years seems cruel. She endured the neglect with uncomplaining stoicism, for her innate warmth prevented her from succumbing to bitterness. All the same, I am delighted that her entire career is now receiving the attention it deserves. Peppin should be congratulated on her success in discovering a great deal of fascinating information about Saunders’ life and work, as well as sharing in an exhibition which does her justice at last.” — Taken from the Foreword by Richard Cork.
