Henry Moore – everywhere!

In Dulwich OnView, Museums, new content on March 19, 2010 at 9:56 am

After going to see the Henry Moore exhibition at Tate Britain a few weeks ago I’ve found myself spotting references to Moore all over the plac.

He’s mentioned in the current temporary exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery about Moore’s contemporary Paul Nash. And there’s a portrait of him in the Irving Penn exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. (Alright, alright, I’m just showing off at how many exhibitions I go to. It’s a hazard of the job really.)

I also spotted a few of his sculptures about the place in London. Are we all left wanting Moore?

I wrote a piece about noticing these, and other, references on Dulwich OnView, which went live this morning.

The Moore show at Tate is well worth the visit. I used to not like Tate Britain shows that much as they were a bit over my head, but this one seems to have been curated, designed and the text written with the visitor in mind. Great stuff. Do go and see it.
