Overview

A record of the famed sculptor’s 1968 Tate retrospective, accompanied by a beguiling and crisply enunciated narration by Hepworth herself, which she describes her techniques and the aims of her work.

The exhibition illustrates a broad range of Hepworth’s output, from early wood carvings to her abstract stringed figures of the 1930s and the monumental grandeur of her 1960s pieces.
