While known primarily as a sculptor, Hepworth made a number of important prints later in her career. This piece forms part of the Aegean Suite of lithographs, created in 1970-71. They were begun in St Ives and completed at the famous Curwen Studio in London. Hepworth used the process of printing to work on ideas which would eventually translate into sculpture, creating an abstract sense of space, form and texture through the use of transparent smooth layers and bold mark-making. An example of this print is held by the Tate.
