Barbara Hepworth's Sculpture Garden | TateShots

Barbara Hepworth first came to live in Cornwall with her husband Ben Nicholson and their young family at the outbreak of war in 1939. She lived and worked in Trewyn studios, now the Hepworth Museum, from 1949 until her death in 1975.

TateShots travelled to St Ives to explore the studio and its gardens, where Hepworth's sculptures are seen in the environment for which they were created. 'Finding Trewyn Studio was a sort of magic', wrote Hepworth; 'here was a studio, a yard and garden where I could work in open air and space'. The film includes archival footage from an interview with the artist from 1973.

Very cool old footage. Look how the camera moved around the sculptures. We are deeply lacking in artistic style today.
