Eric Gill, An exhibition of works on paper.

This Spring Sotheran’s will be holding an exhibition of works on paper by Eric Gill, surely one of the twentieth-century’s most influential wood-engravers, typographers and sculptors. The woodcuts printed on wove and delicate Japanese paper will be accompanied by a small selection of books containing examples of his art such as the Golden Cockerel Press’s edition of Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde. Gill’s genius as sculptor led him to be commissioned to execute a number of significant large scale works, including those for Broadcasting House, Langham Place, London and three stone bas-reliefs for the League of Nations building in Geneva. However our exhibition will focus on the small scale with woodcuts covering a wide range of secular and religious subjects.
