Nevinson visited Paris in 1912 and met, amongst others, Boccioni and Severini. He also saw the work of Pablo Picasso. This time spent in Paris was arguably the most important period of Nevinson's life, and was the start of his adoption of the Futurist and Vorticist style that he championed in his 1914 work 'Returning to the Trenches'.
