Forms (Brown, Grey and White), 1941 by Barbara Hepworth giclée print (80 x 60 cm)
80 x 60 cm giclée art print on textured watercolour paper featuring Forms (Brown, Grey and White), 1941 by Barbara Hepworth, reproduced from an original 1941 work.
During the Second World War, Hepworth could only draw at night and make a few plaster maquettes as her days were filled with running a nursery school, double-cropping a small garden for food, and trying to feed and protect her children. Drawings like Forms (Brown, Grey and White) (1941) allowed her to continue thinking about forms in space when she was unable to make physical objects. The crystalline structures relate to stringed sculptures that Hepworth had started making in 1939 and reflected her interest in science.
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.
