Opening this month in Barcelona is a major retrospective of the work of artist Henry Moore. Encompassing six decades of work, this retrospective exhibition of approximately one hundred sculptures and seventy drawings will present a comprehensive display of Moore's artistic achievements in a wide variety of media, as well as both small scale and monumental bronzes, original plasters and a selection of found objects from the artist's studio at Perry Green.
Spain held a special significance for Henry Moore, who visited the north of country during a touring holiday in 1934. The powerful and primitive forms he found in the famous cave paintings at Altamira were a tremendous source of inspiration, both immediately in drawings and carvings, and in later bronzes such as Woman 1957-58 (LH 439).
