family of man


A gift from Barbara Hepworth to Benjamin Britten, The Family of Man sits alongside the reed beds at Snape Maltings and is part of a set of nine individual sculptures.

Crafted by Hepworth in the early 70s, the work was unfinished at the time of her death and the site at Snape offers a remarkable outlook of one on Britain’s most important twentieth century artists.
