11th February, 2016 - 20th May, 2016

This spring we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden with a special series of events and activities.

Barbara Hepworth first came to live in Cornwall with her husband Ben Nicholson and their young family at the outbreak of war in 1939. She lived and worked in Trewyn studios – now the Barbara Hepworth Museum – from 1949 until her death in 1975. Following her wish to establish her home and studio as a museum of her work, it first opened to the public in 1976 and was placed in the care of the Tate in 1980.
