Dame Barbara Hepworth DBE (10 January 1903 – 20 May 1975) was an English sculptor. Her work exemplifies Modernism, and with such contemporaries as Ivon Hitchens, Henry Moore, Ben Nicholson, Naum Gabo she helped to develop modern art (sculpture in particular) in Britain.
Barbara Hepworth This piece of art demonstrates space in between each tear dropped ring. I like how the gradation from the shadows creates an interesting effect. the repetition of the rings becoming increasingly smaller is very nice. the piece is perfectly balanced because there is a ring that faces each way at least once.
