Description

Henry Moore is most recognized for his large outdoor sculpture, but his work began on a much smaller scale. As early as the 1930s, along with Barbara Hepworth, Moore became interested in adding space as a viable element to his sculpture. And though he did not necessarily rely on piercing through marble or bronze to convey the importance of space, Moore’s acknowledgement of the absence of material is just as powerful. In Reclining Form, for example, a dramatic cavity is revealed beneath the supple curves of a fully modeled form, and the buoyant space created below releases the weightiness of the heavy marble above.
