This talk will introduce the work of Henry Moore and how from an early fascination with the caves, rocky outcrops, and slag heaps of his Yorkshire childhood to his immersion in the sheep fields of Perry Green, nature has consistently influenced and reflected the forms chosen by the sculptor.
Speaker Dr Hannah Higham is Curator for Henry Moore Collections and Exhibitions. Higham joined the Henry Moore Foundation in May 2016 having previously worked for Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery, The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and The Barber Institute of Fine Arts.
