9780094648500: Eric Gill: Man of flesh and spirit

Eric Gill is perhaps the greatest English artist-craftsman of the twentieth century. His most celebrated achievements were sculptures in stone and wood (""Prospero and Ariel"" on Broadcasting House; the ""Stations of the Cross"" in Westminster Cathedral). Malcolm Yorke reassesses this cranky, eccentric but vulnerable and modest man and illustrates his life and work with over 100 examples of Gill’s engravings, sculptures and erotic drawings.
