Lecturer Elizabeth Strang as recruited as a guide when Tate Modern opened in 2000 and has since worked at both Tate Modern and Tate Britain. She specialises in 20th century art. This look at the life of Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) starts with her childhood in Yorkshire and her attachment to its landscape. Her work was further influenced by the land and sea when she settled in Cornwall later in her life. The inspiration she received from nature, together with her work ethic, resulted in her wonderful works in stone, wood and bronze.
