Henri Gaudier-Brzeska

(1891 – 1915)
Epstein met Gaudier Brzeska in 1911, when Brzeska came to Epstein’s Chelsea studio and asked to see the tomb of Oscar Wilde which Epstein was then carving. Epstein thought that Brzeska was “very pleasant” and the two men were interested in each other’s work. However, their friendship was brief as Brzeska was killed in action in 1915.
