The Musée Rodin is holding the first monographic exhibition on the work of British sculptor Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) in Paris, in association with Tate. Though little known in France, Barbara Hepworth — who was close to artists such as Henry Moore, Picasso and Mondrian — revolutionized sculpture with her development of a new aesthetic sensibility. Her abstract works, imbued with poetic purity, aspire to an ideal, peaceful world.
The Musée Rodin’s tribute exhibitionto Hepworth will present these sculptures, with their combination of solid and void; visitors who see these compelling artworks will find them hard to forget.
The Musée Rodin is one of the very few places in France to have exhibited Barbara Hepworth’s work in her lifetime, so it naturally fell to the same museum — which included her in group exhibitions over 60 years ago — to reintroduce her powerful and poetic art to the French public.
