DISPLAY: Eric Gill 1882-1940. Westward Ho!, 1921. Wood engraving.

Eric Gill made this print from a design by the artist and poet David Jones (1895-1974) who had just joined Gill’s artistic community at Ditchling in Sussex. Jones had served on the Western Front during the First World War and produced the design as a guide for Gill when he needed to carve an infantryman in relief for the base of a war memorial.
