This exhibition traces Barbara Hepworth’s growing international success offering fresh ways of thinking about her art. Uniquely, this retrospective also plays with the different spaces in which Hepworth presented her work. Alongside sculpture, it features rarely seen textiles, photographs, collages and film, and selected works by her peers and predecessors from Jacob Epstein to Henry Moore. This major exhibition charts Hepworth’s progress from the earliest surviving carvings to the large-scale bronzes of the 1960s. Among the highlights are four large sculptures in sumptuous African hardwood – the high point of her post-war carving career – reunited in one room.
This tour is delivered in BSL by guide Edward Richards, with voice over interpretation by Alison Pottinger.
