Discover how the differing landscape of various locations inspired the modernist sculptors Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.
Having been born and brought up in the Wakefield district, the industrial and rural landscape of Yorkshire undoubtedly had an impact on the formative years of both Hepworth and Moore. This exhibition extends the exploration of their work to include pieces influenced by other places where the sculptors spent their time, including Stonehenge, Cornwall and a bay off the Isles of Scilly called Mincarlo.
Contemporary works by Ro Robertson and Emii Alrai, inspired by Yorkshire and Cornish landscapes will also be on display.
