Lewis, Wyndham (1882-1957) - 1912 The Creditors Percy Wyndham Lewis was an English painter and author. In the years 1913-15 that he developed the style of geometric abstraction, a style which his friend Ezra Pound dubbed "Vorticism". Lewis found the strong structure of Cubist painting appealing, but said it did not seem "alive" compared to Futurist art, which, conversely, lacked structure. Vorticism combined the two movements in a strikingly dramatic critique of modernity.
