Barbara Hepworth: Writings and Conversations Hardcover by Sophie Bowness

The publication of the first collection of Barbara Hepworth’s writing and conversations coincides with the first major Barbara Hepworth exhibition at the Tate in London for almost 50 years.

Alongside the writings are Hepworth’s lectures and speeches are a selection of interviews and conversations with writers and journalists, radio and television broadcasts. The collection sheds new light on Hepworth’s life, her working practices, the sources of her inspiration, the breadth of her intellectual interests and her deep engagement with contemporary politics and society, from the United Nations to St Ives. The illustrations include manuscripts and archive photographs from Hepworth’s own collection.
