Barbara Hepworth

Musée Rodin, Paris

5 Nov 2019 - 22 Mar 2020

Although Barbara Hepworth visited fellow artists and exhibited her work in Paris a number of times, and at one point seriously considered moving there, she never became a household name across the channel. Bringing her first monographic exhibition to the French capital, the Musée Rodin celebrates her singular sculptural language of abstract forms and voids. Find out more from the Musée Rodin’s website.
