Art & Life Barbara Hepworth A5 exhibition postcard
A5 (21 x 14.8 cm) single exhibition postcard featuring Mother and Child by Barbara Hepworth, from the Wakefield Art Collection. Hepworth decided to separate the mother from the child, emphasising that the mother and child are of one flesh and, at the same time, independent of each other.
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 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.
