Abstract

During the 1950s, the commercial art gallery Gimpel Fils, London, established itself as a prominent space for showing and selling contemporary art. This paper considers the gallery’s role in promoting sculpture during that decade and examines the organisation, display and reception of the Barbara Hepworth’s first exhibition at Gimpel Fils, in 1956, as a case study.
