The Aegean Suite by Barbara Hepworth
Display: 27 March - 20 June 2015
This fascinating group of nine prints was kindly gifted to Lakeland Arts by the Hepworth Estate following Abbot Hall’s hugely successful 2014 exhibition, Barbara Hepworth: Within the Landscape. Inspired by her trip to Greece in 1954 with friend and patron, Margaret Gardiner, Hepworth created The Aegean Suite in 1971 and infused the works with references to Greek culture and the Greek landscape. This is also an opportunity to view two of Hepworth’s sculptures from our collection, Moon Form, 1968 and Torso III (Galatea), 1958.
