Summary
Praised by the New York Times at the time of her death as one of the world's foremost sculptors, Barbara Hepworth left a legacy of creations that continues to inspire new generations of artists. This program reveals the beauty and the power of her sculptures through footage of her naturalistic carvings of the 1920s, her increasingly abstract sculptures of the '30s, her ambitious postwar works, her monumental public commissions, and the striking creations of her final years. The program also uses Dame Barbara's own words, drawn from writings, correspondence, and archival interviews, to express the ideas that motivated her.
