Description: Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World:
- Renowned for her elegantly sleek sculptures in stone, wood, and bronze, Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) is among Britain's most important modern artists. This groundbreaking new publication focuses on the spaces and contexts, physical and conceptual, in which the artist is positioned. It examines her interest in staging and presenting work indoors and out in studio, film, garden, stage, architecture, photography, and print. As well as placing her work alongside her British and international contemporaries, a broad range of distinguished contributors also consider wider technical and intellectual concerns. Richly illustrated with more than 200 color images drawn from her entire career, the catalog represents some of Hepworth's best-known works in addition to introducing some of her less familiar pieces. The book features previously unseen documentary material, including photographs and film stills that cast new light on one of the 20th century's greatest artists.
