Barbara Hepworth (1903–1975) was a leading figure of the international modern art movement in the 1930s, and one of the most successful sculptors in the world during the 1950s and 1960s. Her work will be showcased at Tate Britain in late 2015 as well as touring the Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo (November 2015–April 2016) and Arp Museum, Rolandseck (May–August 2016).
Her work as described by Tate determines Hepworth an influential figure within her field and as such, her exhibit for those interested in Art and Design and specifically sculpture - is something not to be missed:
"This major retrospective will consider Hepworth’s work in relation to how the work was shown and the personal and artistic contexts in which it was made. Revealing her contribution across various platforms – from art school to studio, in magazine, photos, films, in the landscape and in architecture – it will place Hepworth’s work in its full international context. It will include Hepworth’s major sculptures alongside less familiar works and the art of a number of her contemporaries in Britain and abroad."
