Her style developed from figurative to geometric to abstract, culminating in the grandeur of her large-scale post-war work. Her best-known work is associated with the landscape around St Ives in Cornwall, where she lived for most of her working life.
Remaining a central figure in twentieth-century art this Barbara Hepworth book tells the story of her life and artistic development. As part of the St Ives Artists Series of books produced by the Tate it gives an up-to-date and concise overview of the sculptors phenomenal career.
