The first major retrospective of the artist's work in the United States in the past 20 years, this exhibition includes approximately 120 works of art that not only span Henry Moore's career, but also illustrate his seminal role in the evolution of modern sculpture. Objects on view will include Moore's carvings in wood, stone, and other media, as well as drawings, maquettes, and plasters. The exhibition will focus on Moore's work as a carver, and will include many of his early, provocative works that serve to alter common perceptions about this major sculptor of the 20th century.
