There is so much interest in Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, and post-war British sculpture at the moment! Very much reflected on this blog, as Jacquetta Hawkes had many connections with these artists and was also inspired by British landscapes and geology. The latest event takes place in Powys: Dr Christine Finn will show Figures in a Landscape, Jacquetta’s 1953 film about sculptor Barbara Hepworth, and discuss the British post-WW2 arts scene at the Bleddfa Centre on 8 October.
