Yorkshire: Hepworth, Moore and the Landscape at The Hepworth Wakefield
Art Exhibition, Sat 30 Apr 2016 - Fri 31 Mar 2017, free entry
Also at this Venue
As The Hepworth Wakefield marks its 5th birthday, this exhibition celebrates the artistic heritage of Wakefield and Yorkshire with a major display of paintings from the Wakefield Permanent Art Collection, and key works by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.
These great British sculptors grew up in Yorkshire and were both famously influenced by local landscapes. Moore spoke of early encounters with rocky outcrops, the ‘big, bleak lump of stone set in the landscape’, while Hepworth recalled, ‘moving through and over the West Riding landscape with my father in his car, the hills were sculptures; the roads defined the forms’.
The Yorkshire landscape is an enduring inspiration for artists, and the Hepworth invites you to see Hepworth and Moore’s sculptures amidst scenes of this beautiful region painted by John Inigo Richards (1731 – 1810), Philip Reinagle (1749 – 1833) and Edna Ginesi (1902 – 2000) among others.
