Variations of Jacob Epstein's Rock Drill, to include an unfinished torso that is absolutely stunning -- seem to me to have gained in their impact as the decades have passed. In the US, the Nasher Museum at Duke University mounted a fine Vorticist show recently. Some astonishing work. If you have the chance get to the Tate and see this show.
