Barbara Hepworth: Sculpture for a Modern World

24 June – 25 October 2015
Major retrospective exhibition. Charting Hepworth’s progress from her earliest surviving carvings to the large-scale bronzes of the 1960s. Among the highlights are four large sculptures in sumptuous African hardwood – the high point of her post-war carving career – reunited in one room. More at Tate.
