Ariel between Wisdom and Gaiety

Bas relief by Eric Gill

 

Eric Gill (1882 – 1940) trained initially as an architect with W.D. Caroe, who specialised in ecclesiastical architecture. During his training, he took classes in stone masonry at Westminster Technical Institute and in calligraphy at the Central School of Arts and Crafts, before giving up as an architect in 1903.

In 1912 Gill had his first public success, and thereafter began to produce more and more works, including many sculptures for buildings.
