This permanent exhibition explores Barbara Hepworth’s studio environment, her tools and materials, and the works she created in the later years of her life, including a unique collection of the artist’s working models for her bronze sculptures. The centrepiece is the prototype for Winged Figure, a commission from John Lewis for their flagship store on Oxford Street in London. At nearly six metres in height, this is the only full-size working model of Hepworth’s monumental commissions to survive.
The gift was generously given by the Hepworth family through the Art Fund.
