Barbara Hepworth and Prints
By the early 1960s Barbara Hepworth’s work had become not just about a strict geometry but also about composite structures and a monumental presence. It is later that she became known for her prints; she made a number of portfolios between 1969-71. The artist’s gallery, Marlborough Fine Art, London, published Opposing Forms of which the print at the Art Fair Winter Solstice 1970 is a part. Brushstrokes and strings of tension create a spiral composition but an almost landscape horizon is present, leaving you grounded on earth looking up. Other Barbara Hepworth lithographs from this period share a similar theme: colours, titles and shapes bring to mind Cornwall and its coast.
