Radical and experimental, Henry Moore was one of Britain’s greatest sculptors. This major exhibition, opening at Tate Britain on 24 February, will reassert his position at the forefront of progressive 20th-century sculpture, bringing together the most comprehensive selection of his works for a generation. Moore first emerged as an artist in the wake of the First World War. His sculpture expressed new ideas about the human body, reflecting the birth of psychoanalysis and growing public anxiety about further conflict. The exhibition begins with his carvings from the 1920s and 30s, including a selection of his iconic mother and child figures. Also on display will be Moore’s drawings of Londoners sheltering from the Blitz in Underground stations, as well as celebrated sculptures from the 1950s and 60s, depicting the humanitarian anguish and political uncertainty of the post-war era.
