Three Oblique Forms (February)

1903 – 1975

Three Oblique Forms (February)
Plaster on a plaster base
23 × 35.5 × 16.5 cm
Presented by the artist’s daughters, Rachel Kidd and Sarah Bowness, through the Trustees of the Barbara Hepworth Estate and the Art Fund


This plaster was cast in polished bronze in an edition of 9. In the year after this work was made, Hepworth created a monumental version Three Obliques (Walk In) (1968), contrary to her normal practice of making the small counterparts after the larger works. In 1970 she cast a bronze edition of the same work, Maquette for Walk-In, and in 1969 she made a lithograph of the same subject Oblique Forms.
