From its simple origins in her studio, Barbara Hepworth’s abstract sculpture has become iconic, taking pride of place in museum collections worldwide. Celebrated throughout her career in Britain, she was also a leading figure in international modern art.

This major exhibition charts her progress from the early carvings to the large-scale bronzes of the 1960s, showing the way Hepworth’s work was presented in different contexts. Alongside sculpture, it features rarely seen textiles, photographs, collages and film.
