An exquisitely produced book showcasing the garden in St Ives throughout the seasons, with new photography and updated information on the plants from the Head Gardener, Jodi Dickinson.

Barbara Hepworth's studio at Trewyn in St Ives is a unique combination of sub-tropical garden and sculpture museum. A haven of peace, it provided Hepworth with a working environment, a showcase for her sculpture, and the opportunity to pursue her love of gardening.

The Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden is a beautiful record of the plants and sculptures at Trewyn through the seasons, exploring the relationship between Hepworth's sculpture and the natural forms that surround them. With specially commissioned photographs and full descriptions of both plants and sculptures, this is a comprehensive record of Barbra Hepworth's years in St Ives, and a beautiful souvenir of the garden.

Texts from art historian and previous curator at Tate, Chris Stephens, along with Miranda Philips contextualises the work of Hepworth and the decisions made to create one of the most famous artists gardens in the world.
