Henry Moore: Influences and Influenced
3 May - 15 June 2019
Henry Moore is one of the most important figures in 20th century British sculpture. His work influenced his contemporaries and inspired a younger generation. It was also his work that the post-war generation fought to repudiate. This exhibition will explore these themes.
Unit One will act as the starting point for the exhibition, a key moment in British art history and pivotal in Moore’s career. Formed in 1933 by Paul Nash the group included artists such as Barbara Hepworth (with whom Moore had studied at Leeds College of Art), John Armstrong, Ben Nicholson and Tristram Hillier. Modern art at the time was divided between surrealist and purely abstract artists, but Unit One sought a fusion between these seemingly opposing movements.
