Henry Moore: Prints

Henry Moore

Henry Moore: Prints presents etchings and lithographs by the famed British artist. Best remembered as a sculptor of figurative semi-abstraction, Moore also produced numerous prints during his career, often of his wildly popular reclining and seated figures. Henry Moore: Prints features several examples of these ubiquitous forms, including the monumental Stone Reclining Figure (also a rare artist proof), as well as animals, interiors, and mothers with children – another frequent motif after the birth of Moore’s daughter in 1946. These pieces demonstrate the artist’s progression from early work principally concerned with mass, to later figures, pierced through with openings to examine space.

Henry Moore: Prints is also on view at Childs Gallery, February 25 through April 25, 2021.
