January - Rosewall sculpture by Barbara Hepworth (1960-1962)

‘Rosewall’ by Dame Barbara Hepworth is one of the most historically significant modern public artworks in Derbyshire. 

One of four unique stone carvings produced by Hepworth in St Ives, it was bought by the Post Office in 1963 and later acquired by the Borough Council with support from the Art Fund.

Made of Nebrasina stone, an imported limestone quarried in Italy, Rosewall weighs in at 2.5 tonnes and is one of only four stone carvings produced by Hepworth before she died in 1975.

The grade two listed piece is named Rosewall after the hill that rises in St. Ives where it was sculpted, however, it is also referred to as Curved Reclining Form and can be found today on Future Walk at West Bars in Chesterfield Town Centre.
