- Barbara Hepworth Museum
The Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden in St Ives,
Cornwallpreserves the 20th century sculptor's studio and gardenmuch as they were when she lived and worked there. The studio, known as Trewyn Studio, was purchased by Hepworth in 1949, and is typical of the stone-built houses in St Ives. Her living room is furnished as she left it, while the workshop remains full of her tools and equipment, materials, and part-worked pieces.
The sculptures featured at the museum (mainly in the secluded garden) were some of her favourites. Her workshop also includes a queue of uncut stones that one visitor has described as "still waiting for their moment in the shadow of her workshop".
Barbara Hepworthdied in a fire at this site in 1975, when she was aged 72.
