Barbara Hepworth Museum & Sculpture Garden
With a National Art Pass you get
The Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden offers an absorbing insight into the work of one of Britain's most important 20th-century artists.
The museum inhabits Trewyn studios in St Ives where Barbara Hepworth lived and worked from 1949 until her death in 1975, when the house and garden were given to the nation. Displays include sculptures in bronze, stone and wood, along with paintings, drawings and archive material.
During the 1950s Hepworth increasingly crafted her sculptures in bronze, leading her to create works on an impressive scale. The Sculpture Garden provides an ideal environment to view many of her most magnificent bronzes in the context for which they were created.
