British/American sculptor Jacob Epstein was one of the major British sculptors of the 20th century. These pieces come from the Gorman/Ryan collection at Walsall Art Gallery.

I always look up when I go past Charing Cross - 100m to the east north side.

Although the six figures representing aspects of medicine and science attracted little attention, the twelve statues representing different stages of life were greatly criticised,

Thanks for the images philpot , Jacob Epstein never really fulfilled his full potential as a truly great sculptor but he produced one of the 20th centuries greatest sculptures, a Vorticist piece titled 'Rock Drill' in c1913,this futuristic looking piece was well ahead of its time and not well received, only reproduction copies now exist as Epstein dismantled it in the 40's, one piece was in the Sainsbury Centre at one time, now in the Tate. We owned a piece of his some years ago depicting a girls head, he seems to have specialised in these portrait commissions  for most of his life and they are not that rare and are relatively  inexpensive at auction.

This sculpture was originally mounted on a large metal drill.

Thanks for that Croker. Fascinating piece. Lots of the Garman/Ryan collection are indeed heads and busts.

There was a very interesting transfer of works from MOMA to the Graman/Ryan collection. Maquettes of work in Bronze.Jacob Epstein (1880-1959) Img_1259Jacob Epstein (1880-1959) Img_1260

Epstein was also a painter mainly of flowers in a semi abstract style ,these fetch as much as his ordinary bronzes in auction but are less well known.
