Barbara Hepworth exhibition at the Rodin Museum, 5th November 2019 – 22nd March 2020

The Musée Rodin (close to our hotels) is one of the rare French cultural spaces to have seen an exhibition of Barbara Hepworth’s work during her lifetime (1903-1975). Now, the museum is holding another large-scale exhibition of her pieces, with help from Britain’s venerable Tate Museum.

Barbara Hepworth is a major figure of twentieth century British sculpture, and the Rodin Museum is the perfect place to show her sensuous, abstract work.

A friend of Picasso, Kandinsky and Henry Moore, Hepworth managed to revolutionise sculpture, imbuing her pieces with poetic purity. In a world recovering from the First World War, her work conveyed an impression of peace.

The exhibition looks at the entirety of her career and works, with paintings as well as sculptures, giving an explanation of her methods of creation aided by numerous unseen archives lent by her family.

This is a rare chance to see these works, in one the most important places for sculpture in Paris.
