The Hepworth Wakefield is delighted to present 'The Hepworth Wakefield Art & Artists', a new guide to the Wakefield Permanent Art Collection.
The Hepworth Wakefield was built in 2011 by David Chipperfield Architects to house more than 5,000 sculptures, paintings, prints and drawings from Wakefield's Permanent Art Collection. At the heart of this nationally important collection is a unique group of works by Barbara Hepworth, who was born and grew up in Wakefield.
Introduced with a foreword by director Simon Wallis, this short guide explores a few of the remarkable and diverse highlights of this national cultural asset that has been so well used over the decades.
The guide includes an A-Z of artists from the collection highlights, featuring Barbara Hepworth and her contemporary Henry Moore, Eileen Agar, Jacob Epstein, Patrick Heron, Ben Nicholson, John Piper, Lucie Rie and Graham Sutherland.Softcover: 112 pages (79 illustrations)
