Additional Information

This poster was designed to promote Tate’s 1968 exhibition of selected works from British sculptor and painter, Barbara Hepworth. It features an image of Hepworth’s sculpture Pelagos, 1946, which was inspired by a view of the bay at St Ives in Cornwall. The hollowed-out sculpture has a spiral form resembling a shell, with taut strings attaching the inner and outer, which Hepworth wanted to express ‘the tension I felt between myself and the sea, the wind or the hills’.

The text on the poster reads:

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.
