Sir Jacob Epstein KBE (1880 – 1959) was an American-British sculptor who helped pioneer modern sculpture. He was born in the United States, and moved to Europe in 1902, becoming a British subject in 1910. Epstein became a founding member of the London Group in 1913 and had his first solo show the same year. His sculpture and monuments were often mired in controversy, including his tomb for Oscar Wilde. It was only after the Second World War that his work began to achieve public acceptance. The Arts Council honoured Epstein with a retrospective exhibition at the Tate Gallery in 1953.

Recently, comparable examples at auction have realised between £2,500 – 3,500.
