Following an interval of almost sixty years, works by Henry Moore, one of the most prominent European artists of the 20th century, will be once again on show in Wroclaw.
Henry Moore - the leading exponent of organic abstract art - is considered to be the artist whose work occupied a crucial place in the European art, and whose sculptures strongly influenced many generations of sculptors, including those in Poland. His creations, focused on a single human form or a group, captured in a monumental and synthetic form, are among the classics of 20th century sculpture.
In early 1960 the branch of the Silesian Museum presented his works for the first time It was remembered as one of the most important artistic events in the times of Poland’s isolation behind the Iron Curtain.
The current exhibition in the Four Domes Pavilion will be a retrospective showcasing 23 works created by Moore during the fifty years of his career, and will also include his large-scale outdoor bronze sculptures.
The project was organized in collaboration with the Center of Polish Sculpture in Oronsko, the National Museum in Krakow, and the Henry Moore Foundation at Perry Green in Great Britain. It is the most important exhibition launched within the framework of the 80th anniversary of the British Council in Poland.
From September 30 till January 20.
