Hepworth worked on a series of drawings of surgeons at work inspired by her visits to operating theatres in Exeter and London.
Depicted as a weighty and monumental figure, rendered anonymous by the medical mask, the surgeon contemplates the impending operation, his hands meeting as he mentally prepares them for action.
Given to Norman Capener by the artist; by descent.
