Moore at Kew

Feature by Lizzie Guilfoyle

A MAJOR exhibition of works by internationally acclaimed sculptor Henry Moore (1898 – 1986) is on display in the World Heritage setting of Kew Gardens until March 30, 2008.

In total, there are 28 monumental outdoor sculptures, representing all of Moore’s major themes – reclining figures, mother and child, organic forms, internal/external forms, interlocking forms and figure as landscape.

The exhibition, the first of its kind ever to be held in London, pays tribute to the inspiration Moore drew from nature and his enjoyment of seeing his work in a landscape setting.

For more information and to view images of the works on display, visit Kew’s excellent website.
