Join a member of the gallery team for an informal introduction to the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.

A leading figure of modern British art from the 1930's, in 1949 Barbara Hepworth created a studio and sculpture garden in St Ives where she lived and worked for the rest of her life. Comprising over 30 works in wood, stone, plaster and bronze, the museum and garden give a remarkable insight into one of Britain's most important twentieth century artists.
