Henry Moore: The Sixties

1 April – 30 October 2022

Join us at Henry Moore Studios & Gardens in 2022 for a fascinating insight into Moore's life and work during a pivotal decade in his career.


In the 1960s, Moore embraced new materials and techniques which enabled him to work on an increasingly monumental scale. He incorporated a greater degree of abstraction in his work and satisfied an enormous global demand for his art, which sometimes generated controversy. This exhibition will feature rarely seen sculptures, drawings, graphics and a wealth of archive material drawn entirely from our collections to illuminate the innovation of an artist at the height of his powers.

Of the 30 sculptures on show, highlights include the never-before-exhibited plaster for Large Spindle Piece 1968 and the working models for some of Moore's most important, international commissions. Over twenty drawings and graphics will reveal Moore’s incredible use of colour and new materials such as felt-pens.

A programme of events will accompany the exhibition.

Adult admission: £16. Free for Henry Moore Friends

Entry to Henry Moore: The Sixties will be included in in a ticket to Henry Moore Studios & Gardens. Located at the artist’s former home in Hertfordshire, the gardens showcase Moore’s monumental sculptures in the landscape where he worked for over four decades. His studios are open for you to explore the creative processes behind his well-known artworks and the family’s home houses Moore’s own art collection and the curiosities that often inspired his sculpture.

Tickets will go on sale in February 2022.
