Figures in a Landscape Excerpt (1953)

Narrated by future Poet Laureate Cecil Day Lewis, 'Figures in a Landscape' offers a poetic portrait of sculptor Barbara Hepworth and the otherworldly Cornwall landscapes that inspired her work. Priaulx Rainier's haunting score beautifully complements the extraordinary works of art, placed in the Cornish spaces that influenced them. Hepworth had been commissioned to design sculptures for the Festival of Britain two years before this film, and remains one of Britain's most celebrated sculptors - she was made a Dame in 1965.
