In the time since then, arguably Britain’s greatest woman artist has been claimed both by her native Yorkshire and her adoptive Cornwall. The Barbara Hepworth gallery museums in Wakefield and in St Ives are wonderful homages to her life and practice, but in rooting her so comprehensively in the place she grew up and in the place where she lived and died, visitors are perhaps in danger of... At least that is the view of Chris Stephens, lead curator of modern British art at the Tate and the driving force behind the Hepworth show that will open at Tate Britain this month. When she established her home and studio in Hampstead, London with painter Ben Nicholson before the war, they quickly became the focus of a group of artists that included Piet Mondrian and Naum Gabo, as well as visiting Picasso and Constantin... “One of the reasons we called the exhibition Sculpture for a Modern World, ” Stephens tells me, “was that it was not just modern sculpture Hepworth was engaged with, but modern thought. Though she is sometimes viewed in relation to male artists of the period, in particular Nicholson and Henry Moore (her Yorkshire contemporary), Hepworth’s career insists on her standing alone.
Westminster Abbey has won planning permission to add its first new tower in almost 300 years, which will create public access to a museum of treasures and curiosities housed in the triforium, the church’s attic gallery. From the exterior, the new tower – designed by Ptolemy Dean , the abbey’s surveyor of the fabric, a role previously held by Nicholas Hawksmoor and Sir Christopher Wren – will lurk modestly in an angle of the building just outside Poets’ Corner,... Designed to harmonise with the gothic style of the abbey, it will be clad in lead and feature leaded windows in metal frames. The tower will be the first added to the abbey – which is now a world heritage site – since Hawksmoor gave the building its distinctive profile by completing the twin west towers flanking the great main door in 1745. The tower will house a new... “We are delighted that our proposals for the new tower and for opening the eastern triforium to the public have the support of Westminster city council, reflecting that of our local community and of other bodies concerned for the preservation of...
There is an old-school Maurice Lacroix fan in my immediate family. ) acquired his first Maurice Lacroix – the original Cinq Aiguilles – way back in 1995. it was his first “real” watch. The second one – the now-classic Masterpiece Double Retrograde – joined his small arsenal of wrist adornment in about 2005. For me, it is precisely these two watches that have formed the quintessence of the brand over the decades: classics with a... Perhaps that’s the reason I’ve had a hard time adjusting to the “new” Maurice Lacroix of the last few years, a brand that now concentrates a bit more on the modern than the classic. Just something to adjust to. Ch-ch-ch-changes. At Maurice Lacroix there have been numerous changes over the last decade or so. Employees have come and gone. And, of course, sourcing components from industry suppliers has become quite difficult, mostly due to the Swatch Group restricting the supply of ETA movements and components (the latest Comco information might see all Swatch Group/ETA supply... However, Maurice Lacroix’s then-product manager, René Baumann, was certain that the future of the company lay in mechanical watches with classically styled dials and cases.
