Henry Moore Drawings: The Art of Seeing

This event has expired!

3 April 2019 to 27 October 2019 Visit website

Discover another side to Henry Moore in the largest exhibition of his drawings in over 40 years.

Henry Moore is best known for his work in three dimensions: for his monumental bronze sculptures sited in cities throughout the world. But it was, in fact, his wartime drawings of Londoners sheltering in the Underground that first brought him widespread public recognition in Britain. This new exhibition, featuring over 100 drawings, explores his remarkable career on paper.

Moore was a prolific and innovative draughtsman, producing a body of nearly 7,500 drawings over seven decades. This exhibition explores the many different ways in which he used drawing. Starting with his life studies of the 1920s and ending with the touching and rarely seen late works, Henry Moore Drawings: The Art of Seeing will guide you through Moore’s ever expanding universe of ideas, techniques and formal languages.

Entry to this fascinating exhibition, featuring an extensive selection of wartime drawings, is included in a day ticket to Henry Moore Studios & Gardens. Located at the artist’s former home in Hertfordshire, the gardens showcase Moore’s iconic sculptures in the landscape where he worked for over four decades. Six of his studios are open for you to explore the creative processes behind his most well-known artworks, and Moore’s own extraordinary art collection is on display in the family home, Hoglands.

Tickets are available on arrival at the Visitor Centre. 
Open Wednesdays to Sundays & Bank Holidays, 11am – 5pm
