‘Violins of the space’

Part of: Hammacher

Hammacher seeks to expand ‘his’ sculpture collection and sees possibilities in the immediate vicinity of the museum, in the heart of nature. He envisages a ‘sculpture garden’ for presentations in the open air, but negotiations with the surrounding National Park are difficult. Hammacher continues his plans and moreover manages to procure many new works, such as those by Barbara Hepworth.
