About Christopher Wood

Christopher Wood (1901-1930) was a visionary English painter known for his distinct and evocative style. Born on April 7, 1901, in Knowsley, Lancashire, Wood demonstrated a remarkable artistic talent from a young age. After attending Marlborough College, he pursued his passion for art by studying at the Académie Julian in Paris.

During his time in Paris, Wood immersed himself in the vibrant art scene of the 1920s, which greatly influenced his artistic development. He became acquainted with notable artists such as Pablo Picasso, Jean Cocteau, and Constantin Brâncuși, who inspired him to explore new artistic techniques and perspectives. Wood's paintings from this period showcase a blend of Post-Impressionism and Cubism, characterized by bold colors, geometric shapes, and a unique sense of perspective.

In the early 1920s, Wood's artistic journey took him to Cambridge, where he studied briefly at the Slade School of Fine Art. His time in Cambridge proved to be a pivotal period in his career as he developed a deep appreciation for English landscape and rural subjects. This experience played a significant role in shaping his artistic style and subject matter.

Wood settled in Cornwall and became an integral part of the St. Ives artistic community. However, his artistic influence extended beyond Cornwall. Wood's association with Cambridge continued as he became closely connected to Kettle's Yard, the renowned contemporary art gallery and museum in Cambridge. Kettle's Yard, founded by art collector Jim Ede, became an important platform for Wood's work, showcasing his paintings and celebrating his artistic contributions.

His promising career was cut short when he took his own life at the age of 29 in 1930. Despite his untimely death, his artistic legacy lives on, and his works can be found in prestigious collections, including the Tate Gallery in London, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Kettle's Yard in Cambridge.
