Henry Moore Exhibition at the Tate Britain

I visited the Henry Moore Exhibition at the Tate Britain (Millbank, London) the day before yesterday. It is a stunning display of works by one of the Twentieth Century’s greatest sculptors. Moore sculpts in a number of different mediums, including: plaster, bronze, elmwood, stone and alabaster.

The exhibition includes etchings and paintings (again using different mediums). The images from Wartime London are among my favourite pieces. Apparently, Moore was trapped in a London Tube station during The Blitz and the etchings depicting scenes from this time. Although Moore is better known as a sculptor these etchings are masterpieces in their own right.
