Born in Yorkshire, Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) was determined to become a sculptor despite the misgivings of her parents and common attitudes of the time against women studying sculpture. Her work received wider recognition after World War II. Her masterpiece--THE FAMILY OF MAN--was completed during her long terminal illness. Here A.M. Hammacher, who knew Barbara Hepworth for many years, provides an intimate portrait of this great artist. 18 color and 181 b&w illustrations.
