DESCRIPTION

Running alongside the permanent displays of work by Barbara Hepworth, the new collection exhibitions will focus on post-war painting and sculpture. Featuring work by Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Graham Sutherland, Eduardo Paolozzi and Reg Butler it will explore representations of the body. At the heart of the display is the destabilisation of the body, the contrast between mass and flesh in painting and the stripping down and opening out of the figure in sculpture. Drawing on Wakefield's Art Collection the displays will be augmented by key loans from the national collections at Tate, the Arts Council and private lenders.
