So it seems, Barbara Hepworth built a lovely sculpture studio and outdoor garden in St Ives, Cornwall. A bit like steak with salad. Scrumptious!

This short video, by the UK’s Tate Modern Gallery, gives a flavour of the place, by interviewing the late Dame Hepworth and showing some of her excellent modern bronzes. She died too soon, in a tragic fire at her studio. My favorite pieces are her large holey sculptures with cords, which resemble fantastic stringed instruments 🙂
