Photographer Bill Brandt and Henry Moore first met during the Second World War when they both created images of civilians sheltering from the Blitz in the London Underground.
This major exhibitions takes over 200 artworks, including important loans from the Henry Moore Foundation's collection, which highlight the relationships between sculpture, photography, drawing and collage. The exhibition includes Moore’s celebrated Reclining Figure sculptures and Brandt’s well-known photographs of coal miners and their families in Durham and Yorkshire, rare original colour transparencies by Brandt, and some of Moore’s little-known photo collages.
The exhibition is currently showing at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, running until 7 March 2021. Book your tickets via the Sainsbury Centre website.
The exhibition is accompanied by a major new book published by Yale University Press.
