English artist Barbara Hepworth (1903-1975) created a unique combination of subtropical garden and sculpture park at Trewyn in St.Ives -- a haven of peace that acted as a showplace for her sculpture, a working environment, and an opportunity for Hepworth to pursue her other great love, gardening. This book is a beautiful record of the plants and sculptures at Trewyn throughout the seasons; it explores the evolution of the garden, its purpose, the placement of the works, and the relationship between Hepworth's abstract sculptures and the natural forms that surround them. With specially commissioned photographs taken in all seasons, two essays on Hepworth's work at Trewyn, and full descriptions of both plants and sculptures, this is a wonderful addition to the literature on St.Ives and on Barbara Hepworth.
