Dame #BarbaraHepworth, one of the greatest sculptors of the 20th century, was born #onthisday in 1903. Here she is in 1963 carving the interior of Hollow Form with White in her Palais studio. As with all her work, the structure and rhythm of the sculpture demonstrates the artist's instinctive feel for her material. The second image is here at the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, where a number of the artist’s sculptures, drawings and archival materials are on display in what was her home and studio.

The Backs were Matisse’s largest sculptures. Over twenty years he progressively refined the original pose, based on a woman leaning on a fence, until he achieved simplicity. Matisse’s decision to show the back view of a woman on such a monumental scale was unorthodox. By concealing her face, he avoided the complexities of visual engagement between artist and model. This helped him to consider the nude as an arrangement of forms that he could simplify and stylise. See the work at Tate St Ives in our current exhibition ‘Nashashibi/Skaer: Thinking Through Other Artists’ which pairs films by Rosalind Nashashibi & Lucy Skaer alongside their selection of artworks that add meaning to their work. Artists include Paul Gauguin, & Henri Matisse.
