Handwritten notes on sculptures.
(Gill, Eric)

Handwritten notes on sculptures.

(c. 1935). Three octavo sheets, each one with Gill's notations in graphite and colored pencil. Two sheets list thirty-seven of Gill's sculptures, including his Westminster Stations. Next to the sculptures' names are an array of further identifying notes - personal owner (Rupert Brooke, et al.), location (Glasgow, USA), and insitutions (Tate Gallery), mainly - as well as numbers corresponding to the endnotes provided on the third sheet. This last sheet appears to be a series of tasks that Gill set out for himself in order to fill administrative gaps; a number of the comments mention photographs to be taken or correspondence to associates. Prominent stain from now-removed staples at center-head of the pages, else a near fine glimpse at Gill's approach to the business of being an artist. Item #32117
