Focus on Figures

This week the 100 Objects exhibition looks at another fascinating aspect of the work of Jacquetta Hawkes.  The featured object (no. 39) is a 1953 film scripted by Jacquetta: Figures in a Landscape, a poetic documentary about the sculptor Barbara Hepworth.  Find out more on the exhibition website, which includes a link to see an excerpt of the film online.

Figures in a Landscape goes to Wales

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.
