The Shape of a Decade

Delve into the extensive collections of the Henry Moore Archive in this themed session which complements Henry Moore: The Sixties

Take a closer look at the development of five key, monumental, bronze works created by Moore in the 1960s, all of which are publicly sited in cities around the world.
