Summary:
While his career spanned six decades, John Skeaping (1901-80) is often associated with the work he completed while he was married to Barbara Hepworth. However, this period of just six years (1926 to 1932) ignores the range and breadth of Skeaping's visual output and fails to reflect his true artistic legacy.

schema:description"The Sculpture of John Skeaping surveys the artist's rich career in the round. Alongside discussion of Skeaping's best-known animalier works, including the well-known series of 'exotic' animals for Wedgwood, Jonathan Blackwood also provides insights into the artist's working practices, as developed under the tutelage of Francis Derwent Wood, and his diverse commissions that he undertook after the close of World War Two."@en
schema:description"Includes a full catalogue of Skeaping's sculptures plus over 200 reproductions of the artist's works, The Sculpture of John Skeaping is essential reading for all those interested in learning more about this unjustly neglected figure within British sculpture. --Book Jacket."@en
