Poppy Mardall very much likes Barbara Hepworth’s drawings of surgeons at work in the late 1940s. There’s currently an exhibition of 30 works in Wakefield, and you can see some of them at the Guardian.
Says Poppy: “Hepworth gets past the clinical and gives us these moving, almost spiritual pictures of what goes on behind the scenes. It makes me think about what we do. And all that focus on the hands and the eyes – so full of beauty.”
