The anonymous vendor, a Cornish-based professional, was a personal friend of Hepworth and received the sculpture as a gift after admiring the bronze original commissioned for Churchill College, Cambridge. It was sold on July 30 together with copies of letters from Hepworth to the owner in which she refers to her conception of the work.

Estimated at £30,000-35,000, it took £60,000 from a London buyer.
