Barbara Hepworth

Barbara Hepworth portraitDame Barbara Hepworth (1903 – 1975) was a British artist and sculptor, best known for her pioneering work in modernist art and as one of few women artists to achieve international recognition. Earning a scholarship to Leeds School of Art, she met a young Henry Moore and the two quickly established a friendly rivalry that saw them pave the way for modernist sculpture.

While early works were characterized by abstraction in marble or stone, time spent in St Ives led to a broader repertoire of wood and bronze, as well as figurative work closely related to that of her contemporary, Moore. Her later career also saw experimentation with lithography, producing suites with the Curwen Press in the late 1960s. Hepworth tragically died in a fire at her Trewyn studios in 1975.
