Our awe-inspiring exhibition is re-exhibited in Compton Verney's stunning landscape and exhibition gallery.
Moore Rodin includes important loans from musée Rodin, Paris, The Henry Moore Foundation, Hertfordshire and public collections throughout the UK. Amongst the works on display are Rodin's magnificent bronze sculpture Monument to the Burghers of Calais, on loan from the Royal Parks, a coup as it is rarely removed from its usual location outside the Houses of Parliament in London. Magnificent works by Moore include the monumental Three Piece Sculpture: Vertebrae and stunning The Arch. The works are sited within Compton Verney's parkland complementing, challenging and creating new perspectives to vistas 'Capability' Brown formed in the 1760s.
