Pastorale reflects Hepworth’s interest in nature and the harmonious forces found in many natural cycles. The strong lines suggest frantic energy which cocoon or surround a gentle circle. The name ‘Pastorale’ brings to mind natural or pastoral music, which in turn gives order to the sounds of the natural world.

Born in Wakefield in 1903, Hepworth was a pioneer of abstract sculpture. Although her distinctive style was abstract, the forms and shapes in her work were based on observation of the natural world such as the Cornish landscape and motherhood, rather than mystic or romantic themes. During the Second World War she moved to St Ives with her husband, artist Ben Nicholson and her children, where she became especially active in the Modernist artist movement. She remained strongly linked with St Ives until her death in 1975.
