Additional Information

In December Forms, Barbara Hepworth presents interconnected curved shapes and circles against a ground of cream and white, punctuated with strokes of blue. Like many of her abstract prints, it implies both the geometric and the organic, perhaps calling to mind the forms of fish laid out together. It forms part of Hepworth’s Opposing Forms series of 12 screenprints, created in 1970.

Barbara Hepworth (1903 – 1975) was a pioneer of abstract sculpture. Born in Wakefield, 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. During the Second World War she moved to St Ives, where she became especially active in the Modernist artist movement. She remained strongly linked with St Ives until her death. Following her wish to establish her home and studio as a museum of her work, Trewyn Studio and much of the artist’s work remaining there was given to the nation and placed in the care of the Tate Gallery in 1980, and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden established.
