The Hepworth Family Gift / Hepworth At Work

On permanent display

Free entry

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.
