One of the most important artists of the 20th century, Barbara Hepworth synthesised seemingly conflicting disciplines and ideas into one inspirational philosophy of art and life. This biography moves beyond the traditional narratives of modernism to provide an insight into Hepworth’s remarkable life, work and legacy.

This fully illustrated biography reflects Hepworth’s multi-faceted, interdisciplinary and networked approach, shedding light as never before on her interests in music, dance, poetry, contemporary politics, science and technology, as well as her engagement with these fields through her loved ones and, most importantly, her artistic practice.
