Epstein is news -- and news not confined to the world of art. His work is to many an enigma. This volume, with 175 illustrations accompanied by captions that are explanatory, interpretative and often critical will help clarify his values and his importance as an acknowledged genius and trail blazer in the field of sculpture. His drawings are less familiar -- this volume will introduce the public to one phase of his work frequently underestimated. (For all of me, they remain unappreciated) The introductory biographical and critical text concerns itself with Epstein in relation to his art, with something of his character and personality. A fine piece of bookmaking, at an extraordinarily low price.
