The Hepworth Wakefield: Mostly Gallery 5

Gallery 5 at The Hepworth Wakefield contains The Hepworth Family Gift, which consists of 44 full-size models – prototypes in plaster and aluminium – that Hepworth made before casting the final pieces in bronze.

The Gift is housed in a purpose-built space, which is dominated by the aluminium prototype for Winged Figure – the 19 foot, 3 inch tall aluminium and steel sculpture commissioned by the John Lewis Partnership for their flagship store in Oxford Street, London.
