Henri Gaudier-Brzeska

I discovered the work of Henri Gaudier-Brzeska (1891–1915) only today when visiting the Tate website. I particularly like this picture, Sophie Brzeska, painted in 1913. I find the choice of colours and shading around the face distinctive and interesting. It also reminds me of Picasso. I am very interested in colour choice as I sometimes struggle with this area in my personal work. 

This piece is featured in the new DLA Piper Series: Constellations at the Tate Liverpool. The exhibition centres itself on the links between artists and artworks. I must go!
