In 1969 documentary-maker & producer Alwyn Owen commissioned an audio documentary in celebration of Frances Hodgkins' centenary. The documentary was produced by June Opie, who acted as questioner, and featured interviews with Hodgkins' friends and fellow artists, including Elsie Barling, Jane Saunders, Cedric Morris, Geoffrey Gorer & Ben Nicholson.

The audio below is an extract from the recording, featuring the recollections of sculptors Dame Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. Hear them remember her with extraordinary vividness and affection.
