Less, I digress! So, I walk into the TATE MODERN and arriving at the top of the stairs to see thee most stunning HENRY MOORE sculpture I had ever seen! I immediately thought,”now I know where they all are”
and then I thought how I could get it out of the museum! Way too many espionage novels as a kid when my father wasn’t looking! But really, if you are not familiar with HENRY MOORE read on! And if you are then enjoy the images!
I have put some of my favorite images of his work, and I am positive you will immediately know his work and all of those artists that are current that have been very inspired by his work, lets just say.
HENRY SPENCER MOORE 1898-1986 was an English sculptor and artist. His forms are usually abstractions of the human figure, typically depicting mother-adn-child or reclining figures. Moore’s works are usually suggestive of the female body apart from a phase in the ’50′s when he sculpted family groups. Moore became very well known for his larger scale abstract sculptures that were carved in marble or cast in bronze.
I could keep writing but the most important thing is to just see if he strikes your fancy. He was a genius and the start of all of this modern interpretation, at a time when they were still copying the classics in sculpture.
