Wild Thing

Wild Thing: Epstein, Gaudier-Brzeska, Gill opened today in the Sackler Wing of Galleries at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and continues until 24 January 2010. For the first time the work of these three influential sculptors has been brought together for comparison: Jacob Epstein, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and Eric Gill. More than 90 pieces - sculptures, drawings and pastels - show their radical impact on British sculpture. The Wild Thing catalogue cover shows Epstein's Rock Drill, which still has the power to look menacing. Gill's erotic relief sculpture Ecstasy (1910-11) is another of the exhibits. Unfortunately, admission costs a bomb. Click the title link for details.
