Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, St Ives

While in St Ives, me and Phil visited Barbara Hepworth’s former studio. Hepworth worked in the studio and it’s garden¬†from 1949 until her death in 1975.¬†It’s only a small museum as the studio itself was based in a small building, but it’s stunning – especially on a sunny day. The studio and garden contain a selection of Hepworth’s sculptures in wood, stone and bronze – with a number of the bronzes in the garden in the positions in which Hepworth placed them.
