Barbara Hepworth in St. Ives


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I can highly recommend a visit to St. Ives in the southwest area of Cornwall and take time to visit the sculpture garden and studio of  the late Barbara Hepworth.  The sculpture garden is filled with wonderful pieces of her work.  Check out most of them in my “Sculpture” page above in this blog.  A particular aspect that I found fascinating was her studio which seems to be in the exact condition when she died in the fire that killed her in this house.  See the pictures below:

St. Ives is also a picturesque spot that is also a treat for a few days, with fabulous beaches, some good restaurants and great walking.  Avoid the high season, however, I think it could be very crowded.
