Barbara Hepworth – 'A New Form for Sculpture' | TateShots

Barbara Hepworth’s modernist sculpture was heavily influenced by natural landscapes and environmental forms. From St Ives to Greece she was inspired by the shapes and intrinsic characteristics of coastal lines and organic structures.

In this film, curator Chris Stephens spotlights the physical process and attention to detail behind Hepworth’s work. We also look at the raw materials she worked with and the visionary way she made the inside of the sculpture as prominent a feature as the outside.
