Moon Play, 1972 by Barbara Hepworth giclée print (52 x 40 cm)
52 x 40 cm giclée art print on textured watercolour paper featuring Spiral by Barbara Hepworth, reproduced from an original 1960 work in oil and pencil on paper. The work features fluid sweeps of lilac contrasting with the bold straight lines which recreate the stringed forms that encapsulated so much of Hepworth's sculptural work.
Barbara Hepworth had a fascination with space exploration and celestial bodies which began appearing in her sculptures and prints following the first non-crewed moon landing in 1959.
Produced to accompany a major retrospective Barbara Hepworth | Art & Life, on show at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern Two) from 9 April until 2 October 2022. The largest exhibition of the artist’s work since her death in 1975, spanning her entire career.
Dame Jocelyn Barbara Hepworth DBE (10 January 1903 – 20 May 1975) was a British artist and sculptor. One of the twentieth century’s most inspiring artists and a pioneer of modernist sculpture and was one of the few female artists of her generation to achieve international prominence.
The print comes unframed and is posted rolled.
