Epstein Centenary 1980
Publisher: Ben Uri Art Society, 1980.
Authors: Arnold Haskell, Simon Wilson and others.
This catalogue was presented in occasion of an exhibition in the Ben Uri Gallery for the centenary of Sir Jacob Epstein's birth in 1980. Epstein's reputation as one of the modern masters of sculpture is now firmly established, but few artists have been subjected to so much vilification for the greater part of their lives. Yet he bore it all with dignity, confident of his powers to make a worthwhile contribution to the arts of mankind.
