Exploring Materials - Henry Moore's Early Carvings

In the early part of his career, Moore carved many different types of stone, from soft alabaster to richly veined Hornton stone. Each stone has distinct properties which would have presented unique challenges to overcome.

Join Sylvia Cox, Assistant Curator, to find out more about the stones Moore worked with in the 1920s and 1930s, and how he learnt to use the qualities of the stone to guide the realisation of his work.
