Daemons and Angels: A Life of Jacob Epstein
June Rose

Hardcover

From Library Journal
Like many artists, the sculptor Jacob Epstein (1880-1959) was a potpourri of contradictions. Born in America, he lived most of his adult life in England. He was reviled in the popular press for his controversial early work (such as the debauched angel created to adorn the Paris tomb of Oscar Wilde), but he was knighted in 1954, near the end of his life. Finally, though he was born and raised Jewish, he created some of the most powerful Christian imagery of the 20th century. The author of a number of biographies, including one on Epstein's contemporary and friend Amedeo Modigliani (Modigliani: The Pure Bohemian), Rose has compiled a solid and often compelling work that strikes an excellent balance between the artist's work and his tempestuous and confusing personal life (a truly bohemian stew of wives, mistresses,...

The Rare and the Beautiful: The Art, Loves, and Lives of the Garman Sisters

From Publishers Weekly
Connolly, the daughter of writer Cyril Connolly, has a bit of an in with bohemian England of the 1920s and '30s. As a window into that era, she chooses four of the nine Garman siblings: sisters Mary, Kathleen and Lorna, and (despite the subtitle) their brother Douglas. Just writing a descriptive sentence about the four is an exercise in name-dropping: among their spouses and lovers were artists, writers and patrons who shaped the 20th century, including Roy Campbell, Jacob Epstein, Vita Sackville-West, Peggy Guggenheim and Lucian Freud. Perhaps because she is a child of that generation, Connolly focuses on their family lives and the numerous ways they flouted the conventions of marriage and child-rearing. The Garmans, who were raised by servants and sent away to school, seemed unable to deal with the realities of...

Book Description
"Jacob Epstein had a vision. "I feel that I can do the best, most profound things and life is short," he wrote when he was thirty, and wished that he "was living in an age when man wanted to raise temples to man or God or the Devil." Time would prove Epstein's artistic talents to be as grand as his creative passion. His powerful and often explicit sculptures, monumental in their scale, would eventually define and indeed epitomize his age - but only after years of controversy during which his work was criticized, condemned, and sometimes destroyed." "While Epstein is now recognized as a seminal figure in the history of twentieth-century art - a Modernist who was the first sculptor to carve directly in stone since the Middle Ages - the genius of his work in the early 1900s was recognized by only a few contemporary...

Blasting the Future: Vorticism in Britain 1910-20
Jonathan Black (Editor)

August 2004
Hardcover

Book Description
A timely and fascinating look at the impact of Futurism on the British avant-garde.

The works illustrated are from a range of prominent public and private collections, and many of them have rarely been exhibited.

The time is ripe for a fundamental reassessment of the impact that Futurism had on British culture and of Vorticism, the specifically British avant-garde movement inspired by the founder of the Italian Futurist movement, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti.

This book, which accompanied an exhibition at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, combines new material and recent research to provide an illuminating and coherent overview of Vorticism before, during and immediately after the First World War.

The exhibition is the first major showing of the movement since 1974 and the...
