Additional Information

In Sun Setting, Barbara Hepworth presents us with a compelling image, its geometric outlines evocatively textured with skilful use of screenprinting techniques. The circlular sun motif looms over the rest of the piece above the ‘horizon’ of Hepworth’s lines below, combining with the title to give us a strong impression of the setting sun. This piece was part of Hepworth’s series The Aegean Suite, 1971, in which she used screenprinting to explore similar themes to her sculptural work.

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.
