Artist of the Day- Barbara Hepworth (click on image to view individually)

Barbara Hepworth was an English sculptor who lived from 1944 to the mid 1970’s. She was one of the first female sculptors to gain international recognition. She began using simplified, natural forms that gradually morphed into purely abstract pieces. I’ve included one photo of her with a sculpture she was working on. It’s HUGE! Even now it feel impressive…because of its size and because it’s done by a woman.
