Sacred and Profane: Edward Burra, Cecil Collins, Jacob Epstein, Eric Gill

5 December 2003 - 1 January 2004



"James Hyman, at 6 Mason's Yard, Duke Street, St James's, SW1, has been making quite a name for himself by mounting museum-quality exhibitions of Modern British art, backed up by scholarly catalogues. His Christmas show (until 24 January 2004) is entitled Sacred and Profane, and features top-quality drawings done in the 1920s and 1930s by Edward Burra, Cecil Collins, Jacob Epstein and Eric Gill. A muscular diva of ambiguous gender and friend (allegedly Billy Chappell and Freddie Ashton) disport themselves in Burra's wickedly witty ink drawing `The Singer'. There are strong, typical drawings by Epstein and Gill, and two very early rare and rather Blakean drawings by Cecil Collins. Another triumph."
