BARBARA HEPWORTH: A RETROSPECTIVE. Penelope Curtis and Alan G. Wilkinson. Tate Gallery, Liverpool, 1994. Organized in association with Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 168 pp. with 196 ills. (57 col.). 30 x 24 cm. LC 94-240160 ISBN 185437141X In English.
Presenting a detailed account of Hepworth's career and a significant reassessment of her oeuvre, this catalogue documents 86 sculptures in stone, wood or metal and 29 drawings produced by the celebrated British artist (1903-1975) from 1927 to 1975, including examples of her figurative carvings of the 1920s as well as many of the biomorphic pieces and Constructivist-influenced abstractions for which she is best known. Accompanied by a chronology of the large-scale public commissions executed by Hepworth following World War II, four substantial essays discuss her early mastery of direct carving techniques, her progression toward abstraction in the 1930s, her links to such artists as Moore, Nicholson and Gabo, the incorporation of landscape forms in her work following her move to St. Ives in 1939, and the fluctuations in the critical response to her work during the last decades of her career.
