Summary expansion
Barbara Hepworth has been proclaimed by many as the "first great woman sculptor". After years struggling to succeed as an artist, she made a major breakthrough in 1931 with her Pierced Form sculpture. Her works can be seen in major cities across the world, including one at the United Nations building in New York. Many more Hepworth sculptures can be seen at the museum on the site of her Trewyn Studio in St Ives, Cornwall. It was here that Barbara felt truly at home, and the influence of St Ives and its dramatic landscapes can be seen in much of her later work.;This title looks at her life, including her social background and aspects of her daily life, and examines the ways in which her work reflected and shaped social and cultural changes. It features panels including quotations and background information, pictures of her work and a timeline of key events and significant works
