About the artist
Arthur Eric Rowton Gill ARA 22 February 1882 – 17 November 1940) was an English sculptor, typeface designer, and printmaker, who was associated with the Arts and Crafts movement. His sexual proclivities were diverse and unusual and have been condemned by many. However he appears to have felt little guilt about them and was curious enough about his own nature to record the details in his diaries.
