Yorkshire by birth, resident of St Ives, Cornwall, for more than 30 years, scholarship student at the Royal College of Art at the age of 16, mother of triplets, Honorary Doctor of Letters of five universities, Cornish bard, Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire, and world-famous sculptor: such was Barbara Hepworth, whose life always revolved around the demands of her creative work.
This book presents a pictorial record of her life, work and writings over 40 years, from her childhood years to her first marriage to the sculptor John Skeaping and her second marriage to Ben Nicholson; and from figuration through geometric and organic abstraction to the internationally acclaimed grandeur of her large-scale, post-war work.
