Check out Jacob Epstein's work in London

28th March 2013

One of the 20th century's leading sculptors - Sir Jacob Epstein - placed portraiture right at the epicentre of his works and this will all be on display at the National Portrait Gallery from later this month.

Taking place from March 30th to November 24th, this exhibition will be exploring his greatest achievements and practice through busts of artists, writers, politicians and other leading figures that have been specially selected from the National Portrait Gallery Collection.

Epstein made portrait busts throughout his entire career and some of his most famous pieces will be on show at this special exhibition entitled Jacob Epstein: Portrait Sculptor.

These structures will be displayed alongside images of Epstein's studio that were taken by Michael Peto and Ida Kar, among other photographers. Showing the space that he created in, the artist himself at work and sculptures in the middle of being made, these images give visitors a unique insight into Epstein's world.

Modelled in clay and cast in bronze, the likenesses of people were rooted in the observation, but Epstein liked to experiment with an expressive approach and physiological presence with the sitter that helps to make his work so unique.

Ranging in date from 1916 to 1951, the works in the display include some of the artist's most celebrated portraits including the likes of TS Eliot, Vaughan Williams and George Bernard Shaw.

It is completely free to look around as well, making a bargain for people staying in central London hotels in the coming months.

Getting to the venue should provide very few problems for people staying in the city as it is situated close to a number of Tube stops, including Charing Cross, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square.
