Description A rare photograph of Barbara Hepworth in her studio in Carbis Bay, just before she moved to St Ives and what is now the Barbara Hepworth Museum. Lee Miller visited Hepworth (a friend and neighbour of Roland Penrose in Hampstead), to take her portrait for American Vogue. Appearing in the 'Vogue Spotlight' feature in October 1949, the article announced Hepworth's American debut, simultaneous solo-exhibitions of paintings, drawings, and abstract sculpture at New York's Durlacher and Bucholz galleries.
