Barbara Hepworth by Dame Ethel Walker
Ethel Walker (1861-1951), painted this striking portrait of Barbara Hepworth in 1921, when Hepworth was 18 years old. In 1921 Walker had returned to the Slade to study sculpture. So as well as Yorkshire connections, Hepworth and Walker shared an interest in three dimensional form. Signed lower left, condition is good and the picture is beautiful complimented by an old gilt and crimson highlighted frame by James Bourlet. Oil on canvas, size: 24" x 20". (Ethel Walker's work is represented in numerous public and private collections).
