The newly opened Hepworth Wakefield, designed by David Chipperfield celebrates the work of Barbara Hepworth. With over 40 peices donated by the Hepworth family through the Art Fund, which are presented alongside a number of her contemporaries including Henry Moore, Patrick Heron, Paul Nash, Ben Nicholson, John Piper and Graham Sutherland.
The group will have a guided tour of the highlights, with coffee being served on arrival.
Hepworth Wakefield will be followed by a visit to Nostrell Priory. The Art Fund was instrumental in ensuring the Brueghel painting was retained recently, and has now been returned to this former home of the Winn family, who commissioned Robert Adam to create the exceptional interior. Along with the beautiful interiors, the Priory also boasts magnificent parklands and wal;ks, stable tea-rooms and shops.
