A 1-gallery installation focuses on Stringed Figure No. 1 (1937), a cherrywood & string sculpture by this British artist (1898-1981). The exhibition places the work in context, revealing its origins in 19th-century mathematical models and later impact on such sculptors as Naum Gabo and Kenneth Snelson.
