Tucked away down a back street in St Ives is a very ordinary looking doorway which leads into the Barbara Hepworth Museum & Garden - a very magical place.
You can see Barbara's studio - which must have been restored as she unfortunately died in a fire here in the 1970's. You can imagine her working in here - its a very beautiful space.
The museum is full of great photographs from Barbara's life, and the garden is full of her work - which she always wanted to be displayed in the outdoors.
Its a gem of a place and a perfect way to spend a morning in St Ives.
How wonderful, I'd LOVE to see this. Have been enjoying your St Ives photos.
I would have loved to spend that morning with you too.
Excellent post and thank you for bringing this museum to my attention. I have been to Cornwall, but never St Ives. I really love looking at artist's studios.
I learn a lot from my visit here!
Amazing what can be hidden behind a plain and normal door!!!! Diane
Such a tragic death. There's no comparison between the museum in St Ives, hidden behind an ordinary door, and the new Hepworth Museum in Wakefield.
I echo Diane! Thank you for showing us this little gem!
It looks a wonderful, peaceful place even though there was a tragedy there. I'd love to visit one day:)
Vert pretty place, looks so interesting! Tinged with sadness though I bet...
D'you know, in all the years I lived in Pz, I never went there. Now I shall!!
I'd love that last sculpture in my garden - do you think it's very expensive???!!!!!
I have been to St Ives, but not the museum, which is on my list of things to do x
That's a great place, isn't it, Diane - we've been there - I wish the garden could have been bigger though! Abby xz
Nice photos of the Hepworth sculpture garden Diane. x
a must see on my next visit to st.ives! thanks for sharing it was lovely to see!
It looks a really beautiful place, very tranquil. I didn't know that she'd died in a fire, how sad.
