Hepworth represented at the London Art Fair

Key works by Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and their contemporaries will feature in a unique exhibition at this year's London Art Fair entitled Barbara Hepworth and the Development of British Modernism.

Curated by Frances Guy, head of collections at The Hepworth Wakefield, the exhibition will feature a selection of works drawn from the gallery's collection.

Among other works, Hepworth is represented in the exhibition by an early sculpture Kneeling Figure (1932).

Other artists included in the exhibition are Hepworth's second husband Ben Nicholson, and friends such as Henry Moore, with whom Hepworth studied at Leeds College of Art and later the Royal College of Art, London.

Also featuring are artists associated with St Ives, the artists' colony in Cornwall where Hepworth and Nicholson moved before the outbreak of the Second World War.

This pioneering group includes Terry Frost, Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron and John Wells among others.

The London Art Fair will take place from January 15 to 19 at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London.
