A New Movement – Where did drawing take Barbara Hepworth?
May 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm£8 – £10
For Barbara Hepworth, drawing was ‘a particularly exciting adventure’ – a practice intimately connected to her sculpture and to the way she understood the world around her. Michael Bird discusses the different dynamics of Hepworth’s abstract and figure drawings, their roots in the ideals of twentieth century modernism, and their place in the new landscape of post-war Britain. Michael Bird is a writer, art historian and broadcaster. He is Royal Literary Fund Fellow at the University of Exeter.
