Barbara Hepworth drawings

The Guardian’s online Art & Design page today featured two pieces on drawings made by Barbara Hepworth in NHS hospitals, in the late 1940’s.  Fascinating to have a glimpse into that world, and all the more to do so through the eyes of one of the 20th century’s most inspirational artists, in a medium with which she would not usually be associated.  Coming to the end of the mark-making section of Drawing 1, these pictures provide wonderful examples of all that I’ve been studying – especially love her use of line here.
