Barbara Hepworth was a masterful, internationally acclaimed sculptor when she began to make bronzes in the late 1950s. Maquette for Dual Form - and the seven large, public iterations of Dual Form that it both anticipates and echoes - are exemplary of her sensitivity and accomplishment in this definitive three-dimensional medium. Maquette for Dual Form is not a study or preparatory work. Always articulate about her working methods, Hepworth stated in 1963: “I rarely make a maquette. They are essential when working for an architect or a commission; but I always find that a good maquette, in the sense of being accurate, is an unpleasing object; whereas an exciting small sculpture is necessarily very different from the ultimate large one – but more stimulating.” As she emphasizes, the difference here is one of scale, not of medium, process or priority: she purposefully made commanding public versions of Dual Form and the intimate, even domestic analogue that we see here.
