Jacob Epstein, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and Eric Gill were pioneers of modern British scupture. In a sustained burst of daring creativity before the First World War they revolutionised their field. The award-winning art critic and curator, Richard Cork, tells the fascinating story of these remarkable figures, exploring the idea of wildness that lay at the centre of their artistic creed. Spectacular examples of their works, whose sexual explicitness and boldness of form shocked contemporary viewers, illustrate Cork's compelling text, including Epstein's robotic masterpiece, 'Rock Drill', Gill's 'Ecstasy' and Gaudier-Brzeska's 'Birds Erect'. This catalogue has 189 pages, 180 illustrations and measures 27 x 20.5cms.
