[edit] Information

Eric Gill was one of the twentieth century's most admired sculptors. He was also a letter-cutter, typographic designer (of Gill Sans, among other typefaces), calligrapher, architect, writer and teacher. His best-known works include the Stations of the Cross in Westminster Cathedral, carved between 1913 and 1918, and his 1931 Prospero and Ariel for the BBC's Broadcasting House in central London.

Gill lived an extraordinary and unconventional life, converting to Catholicism and creating austere monastic communities in Ditchling, Surrey and at Capel y Ffin in the Black Mountains in Wales. Yet for all the profound religious commitment in much of his art, his sculptures and drawings are often also untamed celebrations of sexuality and the female body. He died in 1940.

The Art of Eric Gill presents many of Gill's most important works, and has a soundtrack drawn entirely from Gill's compendious and controversial writings.
