Arthur Eric Rowton Gill (1882-1940) was a well-known Brighton born carver in stone, a wood engraver and draughtsman. He studied at Chichester Art School and was apprenticed from 1900-03 to an architect. He became a figure sculptor in 1910 and his first solo show was held at the Chenil Gallery in London in 1911. Gill lived in Ditchling, East Sussex, 1907-24, and during this time established a strong interest in the Roman Catholic Church. He removed to Capel-y-Ffin, near Abergavenny, later settling at Piggotts, North Dean, Buckinghamshire in 1928. Eric Gill’s work is held by The Tate, National Galleries of Scotland, Manchester Art Gallery, and many other public collections in the UK and overseas.
