Eric Gill 1882 - 1940

EricA wood engraver, sculptor, typographer, and draughtsman, Gill was born in Brighton. He studied in Chichester at the Theological College, and then at the Technical and Art School before moving to London and attending the Central School. Gill later lived in Sussex and around him sprung up an order of religious artists, influenced by his Roman Catholic views.
Gill never completely abandoned the religious roots which inform his work. Eroticism also features as an important part of it, and Gill was not afraid to combine the two. He held a number of teaching jobs, including gilding at the Central School, and was an associate of the RA. In 1937 he was awarded an honorary associateship of the Royal Society of British Sculptors. Gill died in 1940.
