Henry Moore (1898- 1986) is known around the world for his large scale, biomorphic bronze sculptures.

Moore was the successor to the great European modernist artists such as Picasso, Arp, and Brancusi. He favored sensual or intimate subjects such as languid reclining figures and mothers and children. The scale and form of Moore’s sculptures also draw connections between human form and landscape.

Caviar20 has a particular interest in sculptors who included printmaking as part of their process (Jean Arp, Louise Nevelson, Kosso Eloul etc.)

Henry Moore is perhaps one of the leading 20th century sculptors/printmakers. During his lifetime he created over 700 etchings, lithographs etc. exploring all aspects of printmaking. The practice of printmaking was completely correspondent to his sculptures. He would explore the form or character in one medium and either later realize it in the other medium or vice versa. Moore described his education in printmaking as “intense, exhausting, but exciting and satisfying”.

To learn more about Henry Moore's prints we recommend this video tour of an exhibition of Henry Moore's prints that was organized by the British Council. 

“Two Reclining Figures” is a superlative example of Moore’s study of nature within the human form. Almost equal part rock and human form, these two figures seem to fluidly blend monumental nature and sensuous bodies.

Finally for clients in Toronto, Henry Moore has a special relevancy and connection. The Art Gallery of Ontario has the world's largest collection of Moore's work, including over 900 works, mostly donated by the artist in the early 1970's. Furthermore Toronto has two major public Moore sculptures "The Archer" (in front of City Hall) and "Large Two Forms" (at the corner of Dundas and McCaul).
