Henry Moore Family Collection
Works on Paper from the Henry Moore Family Collection
Hauser & Wirth is delighted to announce an exhibition of rarely seen drawings from the Henry Moore Family Collection. In an era where Moore's work is being re-evaluated by a younger generation of artists and art historians, this timely exhibition coincides with the artist's much anticipated retrospective at Tate Britain. Considered to be one of the most important British artists of the 20th century, Moore's works on paper celebrate his intuitive understanding of natural forms. Selected by members of the Henry Moore family, this exhibition presents works ranging from his sensitive, sublime studies of the human body to his exploratory Ideas for Sculpture drawings. Henry Moore's drawings will be shown on the upper floors of our Zurich gallery in tandem with an exhibition of sculptures by Swiss artist Hans Josephsohn.
This exhibition coincides with the release of the publication, Henry Moore. Ideas for Sculpture published by JRP Ringier.
