Friday's Fabulous Woman: Barbara Hepworth

Barbara Hepworth DBE (1903-1975) was an English sculptor whose stunning organic abstract forms helped develop modern sculpture.  There is a wonderful bio here, that discusses the evolution of her work.  In 2011, the Hepworth Wakefield Gallery is planned to open in Yorkshire and will contain the gift of a unique collection of over forty working models in plaster and aluminum from the Hepworth Estate.
