(1889-1946) UK author and painter who served as a war artist in World War One, and was active as an English exponent of Futurism both as painter, as his war work demonstrated, and as polemicist; Vital English Art (1914 chap) with Filippo Marinetti, a manifesto espousing (and attempting to corner) the Futurism movement in the UK, created an instant controversy, gaining the animosity of Wyndham Lewis. Of sf interest is Exodus A.D.: A Warning to Civilians (1934) with Princess Mariya Troubetzkoy, a Future War tale suffused with interbellum rancour, Paranoia and despair about the survival of a civilized Europe.
