LOT 4066
Eric Gill A.R.A. - a stone rectangular panel, carved in the Ditchling workshop, possibly by Desmond Chute, worked in relief with two lines of Greek text: 'Kai tis theos hegemoneuen' (And some god guided), height 16.5cm, length 71.5cm, depth 4.2cm (weathered surface and broken in two). Note: this text possibly relates to a passage from Homer's 'Odyssey' in which Odysseus' fleet journey to an island offshore from the land of the Cyclopes, Book IX, Lines 142-143: 'There we sailed, and some god guided us through the murky night.'' Provenance: removed from Woodbarton, Ditchling, East Sussex, the house designed by Eric Gill for his associate Desmond Chute. A member of the Guild of St. Joseph and St. Dominic, the silk-weaver and maker of church vestments Valentine KilBride lived at Woodbarton, where he recounted to his daughter, Jenny KilBride Roberts, that Desmond Chute had carved this panel in the Ditchling workshop.
