Barbara Hepworth at St. Albans Museum

Barbara Hepworth: Artist in Society, 1948-53
St. Albans Museum
March 23 – September 8, 2019

This major exhibition explores a short but significant period in the life of one of Britain’s most celebrated artists.

Following a decade of preoccupation with landscape, Hepworth moved naturally between abstraction and the figure in the years 1948 to 1953, capturing the human form across drawing and sculpture.

Finding inspiration in the movements of people in Venice’s St Mark’s Square to dancers in her Trewyn Studio and medical teams performing operations, this poignant exhibition introduces sculptures, drawings and archival material, reuniting works that have not been seen together since they were first created.
