Only Connect - T.S. Eliot <> Barbara Hepworth
How are these sitters connected?
Patrick Heron, creator of this portrait of T.S. Eliot, moved to Cornwall, becoming part of the artistic community there founded by, among others, Barbara Hepworth. She wrote: ‘We may have lived at Land’s End but we were in close contact with the world.’
