Barbara Hepworth 1903-75

Born in Wakefield, Hepworth trained in sculpture at Leeds School of Art (1920-1) and the Royal College of Art (1921-4).

She was a leading figure amongst a group of sculptors associated with direct carving, and in the early 1930s her work became almost entirely abstract. This became the abiding direction of her scupture, epitomised by the pioneering piercing of the block, but also coincided with experiments in collage, photograms and printmaking. Hepworth's works on paper, particularly those made later in her career, reveal a true love for form and mark making.

Hepworth has regularly been acclaimed by historians and critics as one of the few women artists to achieve international prominence.
