Hepworth is one of the key figures of British modernist sculpture. This exhibition provides an overview of Hepworth’s post-war work, with an emphasis on the 1960s and early 70s.
The ninth edition of the annual sculpture exhibition in the Rijksmuseum Gardens will be devoted to the English sculptor Barbara Hepworth (Wakefield, 10 January 1903 – St. Ives, 20 May 1975).
Many of the exhibits are important public works that have never previously been moved from their place. This selection presents Hepworth at the very peak of her artistic prowess.
WE THANK The sculpture exhibition has been made possible in part by a private donor/Rijksmuseum Fund, Pon and the Rijksmuseum Club
