4. Eleanor Clayton: Barbara Hepworth

Last Few Tickets

Barbara Hepworth is now acknowledged as one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. Hepworth Gallery curator Eleanor Clayton’s fascinating new biography offers a penetrating insight into the remarkable life, work and legacy of this singular artist.

Hepworth was reproached for single-mindedness in her lifetime, with critics and commentators framing both the artist and her work as ‘cool and restrained’. Combining Hepworth’s public statements with her private correspondences, Clayton explores how the artist combined interests in dance, music, poetry, contemporary politics, science and technology, and the ways in which she fused conflicting disciplines into her art.
