Eric Gill was one of the greatest and most influential wood engravers of the 20th century. His work is dominated by two overriding themes, religion and eroticism. The apparent contrast of these two subjects was reflected in the man himself. A lay brother of the order of St. Dominic and a true artist-craftsman, Eric Gill found the essential source of inspiration for his art through the licentious sexual nature of his own life. [more]
