Dora Gordine was one of the few female sculptors awarded a solo show at the gallery. She had five such shows between 1928 and 1949, of which the Library has three catalogues. The first show in 1928 (463) was very successful. All the work displayed was sold, including a Javanese Head that was bought by Samuel Courtauld for the Tate Gallery collection. Her 1938 exhibition (684) included over fifty works exhibited in two galleries: drawings and early sculpture were shown in the Entrance Gallery, and the Hogarth Room contained the rest of the exhibited sculpture.
The twelve-page illustrated catalogue includes an Introduction by the critic Dugald Sutherland MacColl and a biographical note.
