Henry Moore: Sculpting from Nature
21 January – 7 May 2017
Drawn from the Henry Moore Foundation’s collection at Perry Green, the exhibition provides insight into the artist's creative process.
Henry Moore used found objects – bones, skulls, flintstones, driftwood and shells – as the basis for his work, first creating studies and drawings and then transforming them into sculpture. This exhibition explores his life-long interest in the shapes, forms and properties of natural specimens, both large and small, found and given.
