An exploration of the different ways in which Egyptian sculpture has influenced 20th century modernist artists in Britain, particularly Jacob Epstein, Ronald Moody and Edna Manley. Researchers on this project also consider how ideas around ‘primitivism’, such as those voiced by Flinders Petrie, influenced attitudes to African sculpture.
