"Henry Moore: The Art of Seeing - An introduction to the exhibition at the Museo Novecento", webinar, April 29, 5:30 pm CET/11:30 am EST
Henry Moore (1898-1986) is one of the most celebrated artists of the modern era. This lecture provides an introduction to the exhibition of his drawings and sculpture (Henry Moore: The Sculptor’s Drawing) co-curated by Sebastiano Barassi with the Director of the Museo Novecento, Sergio Risaliti. Barassi discusses Moore’s life-long interest in drawing, not only as a preparatory tool for his sculptural practice but also as a medium with great creative potential in its own right. Starting with examples from his earlier career, the lecture focuses, like the exhibition, on Moore’s late drawings, which were dominated by unprecedented creative flair and inventiveness and often acquired an almost therapeutic value for the ageing artist.
Followed by a discussion with Francesca Baldry and questions from the audience.
