Barbara Hepworth, Winged Figure, Holles Street/John Lewis

Pioneering artist Barbara Hepworth created Winged Figure in 1963, and it has since gone on to become one of her best known works. Mounted onto the south-east side of the John Lewis department store, the 19 foot-tall work was actually Hepworth’s second proposal for the site, and is based on an enlargement of her 1957 sculpture Winged Figure I.
