As part of your visit in 2019, you will be able to enjoy the largest exhibition of Henry Moore's drawings in over 40 years. Presenting a long-overdue career survey with exclusive focus on drawing, Henry Moore Drawings: The Art of Seeing will include over 150 works from the our own collections plus those of theTate and other major British museums. From the life studies of the 1920s to the ideas for sculpture of the 1930s, the wartime Shelter and Coalmine drawings and the post-war and late drawings, for over six decades Moore’s drawing was animated by a sheer delight in the medium and an unfailing creative energy. The exhibition examines Moore’s different uses of drawing: a means to study the human figure and nature, a method to develop new two and three-dimensional work, a tool to study the siting of sculpture or an exploration of ideas unsuitable for sculptural work.
“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day on Saturday. The new Visitor Centre and Exhibition are a great addition. From very knowledgeable guides, we learnt about the life of Henry Moore, the inspiration for his sculptures and other many art works, and the methods used to create them. Add to this a warm welcome from your staff, delicious catering, beautiful gardens and grounds, all contributing to make a perfect day out. Several members have said they will be visiting again. On behalf of us all, thank you very much for arranging everything ”

“I want to say a huge thank you for our very enjoyable outing on Thursday. We had a very warm welcome from staff and the 3 guides were exceptionally good. My wonderful 92 year old client Mary Algar (an artist and print maker herself) appreciated the loan of a mobility scooter and used it to get about and sketch the sculptures. Finally, thanks for all your help making the group booking go so smoothly. I will be recommending the Henry Moore Foundation to other branches of Age UK. ”
