Barbara Hepworth's unique sculptural style is examined through looking at The Hepworth Family Gift, a collection of over 40 plasters.
The plasters have been gifted from Hepworth's St.Ives studio and will now be permanently housed at The Hepworth Wakefield.
This film looks at her sculptural techniques, the prototypes on display in the gallery and how these reveal so much about her approach as a sculptor.
The work is part of Art in Yorkshire -- supported by Tate, a year long celebration of the visual arts in 19 galleries throughout Yorkshire. Works from Tate's collection of historic, modern and contemporary art will be showcased through a compelling programme of exhibitions and events.
