Rangatira II, 1970
lithograph, 40/60

Argos, 1969
lithograph, 18/60

 

Two lithograph prints are the work of Dame Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975), an internationally renowned English artist who was at the height of her creative activity in the 1950s 1960s. Most of her reputation rests on her sculpture, described as a sensuous kind of organic abstraction.

These prints were purchased in England at the Regatta art show on the Thames in the 1960s, a Royal Charity benefit. They are believed to be two from a suite of six or more created specifically for the show.

These prints hung in the reference area November 2004 - March 2005, on loan from
Britta Franz, former director of the Smith Fine Arts Series, Salem, OR.
