One hundred drawings selected from across the artist’s career are shown alongside two of his most important bronzes.
Although best known as a sculptor, Moore was an incredibly talented draughtsman. He used drawing as a means by which to hone his observation skills, as well as develop ideas for his sculptural creations.
This exhibition accounts for Moore's two-dimensional practice, starting with the figure drawings he made as a student in Leeds. These early works are joined by the Shelter Drawings he produced in the early 1940s, sheep drawings from the 1980s and a selection of his rarely-exhibited final works, such as the shut-eye drawings. Together they demonstrate his commitment to this lesser-known area of his artistic work.
