Trio

Description
In the clinical environment of the operating theatre Hepworth was limited to a sterilised notebook and pen. Only later, in the studio did she make her larger scale drawings. Typically in Trio, the psychological and physical tension of the moment is focused upon eyes and hands.

      We are working – with the University of the Third Age (U3A) – on an exhibition of the history of Poltimore House nursing home and hospital – from 1945 – 1975. We were wondering whether we could borrow this drawing – or probably more suitable a copy or a print from this. It would be great if someone could send an email with your thoughts, and I would be very happy to come and discuss this at RAMM. I am aware that these drawings are on display elsewhere at the moment.
