Henry Moore Foundation 40th Anniversary - Perry Green

April 18, 2017

To coincide with their 40th anniversary, the Henry Moore Foundation unveils a major exhibition that will chart the artist's creative trajectory between 1914 and 1930, from gifted schoolboy to established sculptor. Becoming Henry Moore (14 April – 22 October 2017) – presented at both the Foundation’s venues – will give an insight into the influences at play in the mind of Britain’s foremost modern sculptor during his formative years. It will show his work in dialogue with a range of other artists including Brancusi, Picasso and Rodin.

 

We are delighted to exhibit, alongside this landmark exhibition, an example of Moore's late sculpture inspired by the undulating organic forms of Jean Arp and the Surrealists, which he was exposed to during his travels to Paris in the 1920s and '30s. 'Reclining Figure (Bone)' (1974) reveals the lasting influence of this early period in Moore's career and will be displayed on our stand for TEFAF NY Spring 2017.
