Bronze with color

Construction (Crucifixion) by Barbara Hepworth

This sculpture is one of the largest, and arguably the centerpiece, of the Arboretum collection. Quite unlike the other two Hepworth pieces featured in the Sculpture Garden, it was purportedly the favorite of Hepworth's daughter and was created in homage to Dutch painter Peiter (Piet) Mondrian. There is also a cast of this piece at Winchester Cathedral.

Gift of Alfred Harrison and Ingrid Lenz Harrison, 2017.

Located in the Harrison Sculpture Garden.
