Contrapuntal Forms Sculpture
Two semi-abstract figures. Sculpted 1950-1 by Barbara Hepworth for the Festival of Britain's South Bank exhibition, resited here in 1953. Blue limestone, over 7' in height. Described as a 'monumental group of abstract sculpture symbolising the spirit of discovery' its theme related to its original setting outside the Dome of Discovery, though the figures are equally appropriate to their present suburban setting. It was the first work acquired (though not the first commissioned) by the Harlow Arts Trust, the dynamic independent committee founded in 1953 which has brought an exceptional collection of public art to Harlow. No other New Town has a comparable collection. This is a distinguished example of Hepworth's work from an important period in her development.
