Battersea Park Open Air Sculpture catalogue signed by Jacob Epstein

Catalogue - Open Air Exhibition of Sculpture at Battersea Park,
May - September 1948
with ink full signature from Jacob Epstein

12pp in card covers.

This exhibition catalogue [ publication No 3263 ] was issued for the Open Air Exhibition of Sculpture in Battersea Park, May - September 1948 organised by London County Council in association with The Arts Council of Great Britain. The catalogue lists 43 named exhibits and full-page photo-images of Moore -Three Standing Figures : Rodin - St John the Baptist : Epstein - Girl with the Gardenias : Malliol - The Three Graces : Gill - Mankind ; and Zadkine - Laokoon.

The page showing "Girl with the Gardenias" is signed boldly in blue ink - Jacob Epstein. This programme bears a neat handwritten date of Tuesday, June 8th 1948 to upper front cover. The 1948 open-air exhibition of sculpture in Battersea Park was the first occasion that sculpture was introduced to the general browser rather than the gallery attendee - visitor numbers were in the region of 175,000.
This exhibition ran every three years between 1948 and 1966 - this inaugural event was probably a turning point in british public acceptance of more modern sculpture.
There were many workshops and lectures at this exhibition ;
it was probably at one of these that Jacob Epstein signed this catalogue.
In genuinely very good condition. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches
