Film – The Art of Eric Gill

September 1 at 7:30 pm

£3 – £5
Carrying of the Cross. Eric Gill

This is the final film in the Illuminations series “The Art of……..” on sculpture, all of which are distinctive in having the soundtrack drawn entirely from the subject’s own words. These films have proved very popular with our members.

Controversial as his life was, Gill was one of the most gifted sculptors and letter carvers this country has ever produced. He was passionate about his craft, and many of the figures of mothers and children have a tenderness in them seldom seen elsewhere. Between 1912 and 1918 he carved the stations of the cross in Westminster Cathedral, and in 1933 Prospero and Ariel for BBC’s Broadcasting House.

So love him or hate him, do come along and hear him talking in his own words about the outstanding works of art he produced.
