Henry Moore Drawings: The Art of Seeing
3 April – 27 October 2019
Discover another side to Henry Moore in the largest exhibition of his drawings in over 40 years.
Henry Moore is best known for his sculpture: for his large scale bronze works on display in cities throughout the world, for his semi-abstact carvings and representations of the female form. But it was, in fact, thanks to an exhibition of his Shelter drawings at the National Gallery in 1942 that Moore first received widespread recognition in Britain. This new exhibition, featuring over 150 drawings, explores his prolific career on paper.
“Drawing, even for people who cannot draw, even for people not trying to produce a good drawing, makes you look more intensely.”
