Barbara Hepworth died in 1975, after a long illness which had not prevented her from completing the work which many consider to be her masterpiece: The Family of Man.
Born in Yorkshire in 1903, of the heroic generation in twentieth-century British art which included Henry Moore (with whom she studied in Leeds) and Ben Nicholson (whom she married), she explored in her sculpture the forms of life - especially human life - as well as those of mathematics.
Professor Hammacher has added new material to his study to bring the story up to the time of her death, and has included several new illustrations.
