Barbara Hepworth

Single Form

Single Form is Hepworth’s largest work and her most significant public commission. It stands in the United Nations Plaza in New York. Hepworth was a friend of the United Nations’ Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld, who admired and collected her work. Single Form was commissioned by the Jacob and Hilda Blaustein Foundation as a memorial to Hammarskjöld after his tragic death in an air crash in 1961. More
