Viewing Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life

Barbara Hepworth is one of the greatest sculptors of the 20th century. Taking inspiration from the landscape around her, she revolutionised sculpture by exploring the possibilities of neutral space. This landmark retrospective, first seen at the Hepworth Wakefield in Yorkshire, celebrates her life and art, while underlining the influence of St Ives and its close-knit artistic community on her work.

Through some 50 sculptures, as well as rarely seen drawings, paintings and archival material, Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life traces the artist’s journey from her initial studies in Leeds and her travels in Europe, to her life in London and later years in St Ives. You’ll see her transition from overtly figurative work towards abstraction as well as her enduring interest in the body, space and spirituality.

Highlight works include Disc with Strings (Moon) from 1969, perhaps inspired by advances in space exploration, and her monumental Single Form, made for the United Nations Headquarters in New York in 1964. Also shown are the artist’s forays into stage design.

Shown together, they reveal the remarkable range of Hepworth’s work — and her steadfast commitment to challenging the boundaries of modern sculpture.
