Edward Burra

Edward Burra was a British artist that created surrealistic/expressionistic art the moved from a Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec type artists that observed scenes of celebration to a moment when he changed do to his observation of war. Above is a great documentary of an artist you have never heard of, well maybe.

I am reminded of the American Regionalism of the same time period. Only, Burra was far more surreal and symbolic.
