Poster, Group X, Mansard Gallery
This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from The Museum of Modern Art as part of Underground Modernist: E. McKnight Kauffer.
The London Group no longer suited Kauffer’s ambitions. He approached Wyndham Lewis about forming a new artists’ collective that could support its members in producing work for industry. In the spring of 1920, Lewis, Kauffer, Wadsworth, and other artists formed Group X. Public reception fell flat and the group disbanded after only one exhibition.
