The Artist

Barbara Hepworth

Barbara Hepworth was an English modernist sculptor who achieved international fame for her distinctive artworks. Born in Wakefield in 1903, she attended the Leeds School of Art from 1920. There she met the sculptor Henry Moore and formed a lifelong artistic friendship. In 1921 she was awarded a scholarship to attend the Royal College of Art. During an extended stay in Florence in the early 1920s, Hepworth learned the art of carving marble under the supervision of Giovanni Ardini.
