An Exhibition in Celebration of The Hepworth Wakefield

In collaboration with The Hepworth Wakefield, Phillips presents a specially curated, non-selling exhibition of works by famed British sculptor Barbara Hepworth. "Late Hepworth" explores the final and most prolific decade of the artist's career, showcasing her experimentation with new media and materials including bronze, marble, slate and printmaking.

The exhibition offers a unique opportunity to see three of Hepworth’s major series of prints alongside the sculptures to which they relate, rarely lent from the gallery located in the birthplace of the world-famous sculptor. In 1969, Hepworth made her first major suite of prints, "Twelve Lithographs," which examined forms in her three dimensional work. She went on to make two further print suites "Opposing Forms" (1970) and "The Aegean Suite" (1971). All three will be shown here together.
