Axis: a quarterly review of contemporary ″abstract″ painting & sculpture was a magazine edited by the writer Myfanwy Evans, published in eight issues in London between 1935 and 1937. Evans was encouraged by the French abstract painter Jean Hélion and it was originally intended that Axis should parallel the concerns of the Paris-based Abstraction-Création group. Although short-lived, the magazine was influential in introducing knowledge of contemporary European trends to Britain.
