This new edition of the Savage Messiah, Jim Ede’s biography of the sculptor Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, contains a large amount of additional material, including footnotes, appendices, and new introductory essays on the making and reception of Ede’s book.

This title comes out of collaborative research between the Henry Moore Institute and Kettle’s Yard and has involved the work of its curators, Dr Jon Wood and Sebastiano Barassi, as well as that of Dr Evelyn Silber.

This Gaudier-Brzeska Art Book is also lavishly illustrated with photographs of works and original drawings (many uncommon) that were originally included in Ede’s 1930 manuscript version of his book which is now housed in the Henry Moore Institute archive.

Published in 2011, it also marks the centenary of Gaudier-Brzeska’s arrival in Britain, where he lived until he was killed in the trenches in 1915.
