Tate Britain assistant curator Inga Fraser takes a look back at the career and work of the sculptor Barbara Hepworth and introduces a short documentary film.

Tate Britain carried the first major London retrospective of Hepworth’s work since 1968 last year.  Hepworth was one of the most successful sculptors in the world during the 1950s and 1960s. The exhibition, which featured more than 70 works, highlighted the different ways Hepworth presented her work both in the studio and in the landscape. This event includes a showing of a 16-minute documentary about Barbara Hepworth and her work, Figures in a Landscape, made in 1953 by Dudley Shaw Ashton.

Fraser helped to curate the exhibition.
