This week’s competition prize is Barbara Hepworth: The Sculptor in the Studio by Sophie Bowness (Tate Publishing; £25). Click here for your chance to win.
Barbara Hepworth: The Sculptor in the Studio explores the enormous impact that Trewyn Studio and garden had on Hepworth’s art and life.
A history and a portrait of a unique place, the book illuminates the ways in which the place and the work are bound together. It explores Hepworth’s working environment and the development of her practice over a period of 25 years. The studio, and especially the garden that Hepworth shaped, was the primary and ideal context in which her sculptures were viewed.
Following Hepworth’s death in 1975, Trewyn Studio was opened as the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, fulfilling the hopes she had expressed at the end of her life. The adaptation of Hepworth’s studio-home to create the Museum is examined in detail. The Museum was given to the Tate Gallery in 1980, becoming the first of Tate’s outstations and helping to lay the foundations for Tate St Ives. It contains the largest group of Hepworth’s works, permanently on display in the place in which they were created.
For your chance to win simply answer the following question and submit your details here before midday on 29 September.
