The Letter Carving of Ralph Beyer

23rd April, 2018
The Gallery, 70 Cowcross St, London

A lecture by John Neilson exploring the work of inscriptional carver Ralph Beyer (1921-2008), who is best known for his ‘Tablets of the Word’ in Basil Spence’s Coventry Cathedral. Beyer's approach owed much to his background: a childhood in Weimar Germany, then exile from the Nazis to Eric Gill’s workshop in the Chilterns, and later associations with Henry Moore and Nikolaus Pevsner. John Neilson’s talk will look at some of Beyer’s work in churches and cathedrals.
