British, 1905–1986

Characterized by vivid colors and forms, Gerald Wilde’s expressionist paintings constitute a key development in the evolution of twentieth-century British art. Creating work from the 1920s until his death, Wilde created vibrant paintings that take cues from Cubism and German Expressionism and were a departure from the relatively drab tones of 1920s Britain. Wilde’s career was punctuated by a tenure in the army during World War II and various illnesses that prevented him from working, yet he found success in the war’s aftermath with a solo exhibition at the nascent Institute of Contemporary Art, a strong advocate for the avant-garde in London at the time.
