Figure for Landscape

Dame Barbara Hepworth, Figure for Landscape  1959–60

Figure for Landscape 1959–60 is a large, hollow, asymmetrical sculpture in bronze by the British artist Barbara Hepworth. It was cast at the Morris Singer foundry in London from a plaster original prepared by Hepworth and her assistants in her studio, the former Palais de Danse in St Ives, Cornwall. Renowned for her carving of stone and wood, Hepworth’s move into metal, initially wrought and then cast, afforded her a broader vocabulary of sculptural forms. To produce Figure for Landscape, liquid plaster would have been applied to expanded aluminium over a wooden armature. The artist would then have manipulated the plaster as it set. The plaster may then have been carved further when dried, as was consistent with Hepworth’s practice.
