Sir Jacob Epstein [1880-1959] - we specialise in Epstein's work and buy and sell his sculpture, paintings and drawings. He was born in the USA, later moving to London and became the best known UK sculptor during the first half of the 20th century. Jacob Epstein produced many well known public sculptures during his lifetime and is represented in all the major public collections throughout the world, including MOMA [NY] and Tate Gallery [London].  There are many books on the work of Jacob Epstein including a complete catalogue of his sculpture published in 1987. He produced many innovative sculptures during the early part of his career, but is perhaps best known for his heads and figures where he was able to get under the skin of his models and depict their character and soul in a way no other sculptor has managed to achieve. They are not 'just portraits', he captures real life within the sculptures [Lucien Freud uses models for all his paintings, but we don't refer to these as 'just portraits' they are seen as great paintings. Jacob Epstein sculptures should be viewed in the same way - they are far greater].
