Epstein once remarked that "the face of every male sitter has one profile masculine and the other feminine. I've rarely seen it so marked as in [Emlyn Williams]," the playwright and actor (1905-1987). In his autobiography Williams vividly describes Epstein's penetrating glance and animated, even fierce, sculpting method.
