Barbara HEPWORTH Mycenae  (1958)
Original lithograph in colours on handmade watermarked wove paper. Signed Barbara Hepworth in pencil lower left, dated 1958, and numbered from the limited edition of 30 lower right. Printed at Curwen Studio and published by Curwen Prints Ltd
Some light discolouration to sheet edges otherwise in good condition. An extremely rare and collectable early Barbara Hepworth lithograph from a small edition and with only one auction sale result (that we can find). There is one copy of Mycenae in the V&A in London
During the pilot phase of Curwen Studio, which was set up out of Curwen Press, in 1958/59, a print was made from this same image. Stanley Jones has suggested that it should be described as a 'unique experimental print' and would have been published by Robert Erskine
