Henry Moore at Leamington Art Gallery

This exhibition of Henry Moore bronze working models and drawings is part of the Arts Council Collection.

"Simplicity as an aim in itself tends to emptiness and monotony, but simplicity in carving, interpreted as lack of surface trimmings, reveals the contrast in section, axis, direction and bulk between different shapes and so intensifies the 3-dimensional power in a work".
