Lady Kathleen Epstein (née Garman, 1901 – 1979) was the third of seven sisters, high profile members of artistic circles in mid-twentieth century London, renowned for their beauty and scandalousness.

She was the muse and long-time mistress of Epstein, and finally his second wife. They met in 1921 and immediately began a relationship that lasted until Epstein's death and produced three of Epstein's five children, Theo, Kitty and Esther.

Currently on loan to Coventry Cathedral Stories in Stone exhibition.
Jacob Epstein portraitEpstein was born in 1880, the son of Polish Jewish refugees in New York’s Lower East Side. He moved to Paris aged 22 where he studied at the Académie Julian and the École des Beaux-Arts before settling in England and becoming a British citizen in 1911.

In London, Epstein was involved with a bohemian and artistic crowd reflected in his work. His sculpture is distinguished by its unflinching realism – a style which attracted a great deal of controversy for its departure from conventions of classical sculpture. Epstein is said to have worked to his dying day on 21 August 1959. His work is displayed all over the world and helped forge the path for younger generations of sculptors, in particular Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.
