Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    With Washington Irving Gallery, New York, where purchased by the present owner circa 1960

    LITERATURE:
    Richard Buckle, Jacob Epstein: Sculptor, Faber and Faber, London, 1963, p.267, pl.403 (another cast ill.b&w)
    Evelyn Silber, The Sculpture of Epstein, Phaidon, Oxford, 1986, cat.no.321 (another cast ill.b&w)

    Between 1941 and 1942 Epstein produced three sculptures of the model Deidre.

    'The Second Portrait of Deidre (with a slip) is perhaps an even more delightful work than the first. Her hair falls forward over the left shoulder to where the shoulder-strap of her slip is only just holding it on; and the curve of the slip slanting across her breast continues a crescent frame to the face which the hair began.' (Richard Buckle, Jacob Epstein: Sculptor, Faber and Faber, London, 1963, p.267)
