Joseph Pollicoves 31a rk ! THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
Golden Wedding Date Epstein Sculptures Exhibit to Starts Here

A retrospective exhibition of
sculpture and drawings by Sir
Jacob Epstein will open Tuesday,
at the London Arts-Detroit gallery
in the Fisher Building, to run
through March 18. Gallery hours
are from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, and from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
Some 50 pieces of sculpture and
25 drawings from the collection of
Lady Epstein will be shown. All
but two sculptures are for sale at
prices ranging from $400 to $20,000.
The works range in time from
1904 to the late 1950s — from the
New York-born sculptor's period of
controversy to that of his entry
into the British establishment,
when he was knighted by the
Queen Mother, and the British Arts
Council sponsored a giant retro-
spective of his work.
The early period is represented
by a severed head from Epstein's
controversial (and now destroyed)
group of nude statues in the
Strand of London, the most recent
periods by portrait heads. Portrait
subjects include Bernard Shaw,
Augustus John, Nehru (twice),
Haile Selassie, Yehudi Menuhin
and Professor Lucy Donnelly. A
self-portrait in cap (1912) is among
the earliest pieces.
An unusual feature of the show
is the group of sculptured studies
of hands — 13 in all. Many are
hands of infants and children. One
is a portrait of the hands of Mlle.
Included are several studies for
Epstein's most famous post-war
commission, "St. Michael and the
