    • Beautiful catalogue for the Holburne’s retrospective of Henry Moore’s small-scale sculptures in stone, wood, terracotta, plaster, lead, plasticine and bronze, including works previously unpublished and unexhibited
    • Accompanies a show at The Holburne Museum, from 3 May - 8 September, 2024
    Full Description

    This is a beautifully produced catalogue accompanying the Holburne Museum’s groundbreaking retrospective of Henry Moore’s sculptures that could fit in the hand. At the heart of Moore’s practice was the directness of working on a small scale, whether carving small stones or pieces of wood, casting lead, modelling in clay or, in later years, modelling in plasticine around a found stone or bone to be cast in bronze.

    The exhibition will include sculptures in stone, wood, terracotta, plaster, lead, plasticine and bronze, and span themes recurrent in his work: the reclining female figure, the mother and child, the human head, and the fallen warrior. It will include maquettes for some of his best-known, public sculptures alongside lesser-known works, including the display for the very first time in a museum exhibition of a recently discovered early lead cast of Mother & Child.

    The catalogue presents 80 duotone illustrations with an essay and commentary by Chris Stephens.
