N is for Nesting Stones

Barbara Hepworth website
I have returned to sculpture today with 'Nesting Stones' from Barbara Hepworth. It is quite representative of her style which is very organic and abstract, though often suggestive of human figures. I think my image of her was influenced by the novel 'Notes from an Exhibition' by Patrick Gale that I reviewed back in 2010; it is the story of the life of an artist but Hepworth appears as a character, and is referred to as TBH (The Barbara Hepworth), which seems indicate the level of awe that she appeared to command amongst her fellow artists. I am however beginning to feel that significant, influential women artists are few and far between.

  1. I hope that women's contributions to art are never under-appreciated...
