Barbara Hepworth’s first public commissions were for the 1951 Festival of Britain, for which she created two large-scale sculptures – Turning Forms (1950-51) and Contrapuntal Forms (1950-51). We have reunited the sculptures for the first time in 70 years as part of the Barbara Hepworth: Art & Life exhibition.
