The Art of Jacob Epstein
The Art of Jacob Epstein
by Robert Black
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.77

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor reproduction, 4 Jun 2010
In my opinion this is a very bad reproduction of the wonderful sculpture of Epstein. If you do buy it i think you will be very disappointed. The images are all photocopies in black and white only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on the artist, 13 Nov 2009
This review is from: David Bomberg (Hardcover)
This is about the only book to have in your collection on this artist. Well written and illustrated. One of the most brilliant artists of the 20th century - he should have had more books published on his work. Many contemporary artists owe him their gratitude and this book therefore has and will continue to make an impact. Expensive,but it will inspire if read as well as flicked through! Get the paperback version unless your feeling flush.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on a charming artist, 13 Nov 2009
This review is from: Leon Kossoff (Hardcover)
I love this book and have bought the hardback version to replace my paperback. Great images - well printed. If you like this artist- it's a must have. If you don't know the artist - you should do!

2.0 out of 5 stars Mean machine, 13 Nov 2009
Thought the book was very light on content and overpriced for the hobbit format. Not enough images. General feeling it lacks depth. The front cover was not the one shown! General feeling the show at the RA may not be worth visiting. Feels like a mean book would not have bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever review of Auerbachs work, 13 Nov 2009
This review is from: Frank Auerbach (Hardcover)
I have a collection of publications on Auerbach and was really looking foward to this release. I have been really impressed by the quality and scope of research in this book. The best one on any artist i think - i bought three copies!!
