Linocut, 1932. This has all the
characteristics of the Grosvenor School. Flight, the principle linocut
tutor at the Grosvenor School of Art, encouraged a depiction of movement
as generated by the machine age. But many of his pupils chose to
concentrate on the movements of the human body. In this print William
Greengrass manages to capture in repeated geometry the movement of arms
and torsos, and the very grass and air above and below the hurdlers
seems to vibrate with rhythmic energy.
