Heinz Henghes and Surrealism
Until 7 October 2018
A long-unseen sculpture by Heinz Henghes from 1939 is included in the exhibition Lee Miller and Surrealism at The Hepworth Wakefield. The exhibition focuses on Surrealism in Britain through the photographs of Lee Miller and works by her Surrealist friends and associates.
This stone sculpture, Bride (Guda), by Henghes was reproduced in the Surrealist’s London Bulletin, but has rarely been seen since it was acquired by Wakefield. It was first exhibited at Peggy Guggenheim’s London Gallery, Guggenheim Jeune, in 1939.
England & Co held a major retrospective Heinz Henghes (1905–1975) in 2006 and continue to work with his Estate.
