Abstract

Nineteen twenty-eight was a busy year for Gill. He exhibited 15 sculptured pieces at Goupil Gallery, London; his workshop at Capel-y-ffin, Powys, Wales, was turning out inscriptional work; he was writing articles and books; and he completed some 60 wood-engravings. In that year he also moved from Wales to Pigotts near High Wycombe (arriving there 11 October 1928). On 7 February 1928, he delivered a lecture at Manchester University, which after revision became Art & Prudence, printed by GCP in June 1928. In Spring 1925, he had written to Desmond Chute, ‘Copper engraving is a great game’. Art & Prudence contains two examples of this ‘great game’.
