This exhibition explores Henry Moore’s use of found objects – bones, skulls, flintstones, driftwood and shells – and the interrelationship of these objects to his drawings, graphic work, and sculpture.
At its core, the exhibition is an opportunity to explore and better understand Henry Moore’s use of, inspiration from, and life-long interest in the shapes, forms, and metaphysical properties of natural historical objects, both large and small, found and given. Drawn from the Henry Moore Foundation’s collection at Perry Green, the exhibition will illuminate the interchangeable processes of transformation from found object to drawing and on to finished sculpture.
