Three really good exhibitions in London are united by the works of Henry Moore:
Henry Moore: Sculpture and Drawings, Osborne Samuel, 23a Bruton Street, London W1, until 27th June 2015
This exhibition brings unseen early works including drawings from the collection of his sister Elizabeth Howarth, early carvings, very early lithographs and works from the 1940s. There are also photographs of Moore in his studio taken by the celebrated photographer Gemma Levine.
Rodin, Brancusi, Moore: Through the Sculptor’s Lens, Waddington Custot Galleries, 11 Cork Street, London W1, until 11th July 2015
We see through this exhibition of fifty vintage photographs from their studios how important photography was as a part of the working process of Auguste Rodin (1840–1917),Constantin Brancusi (1876–1957), and Henry Moore (1898–1986).
It provides an absolutely fascinating insight into their creative world perhaps best summed up by Brancusi who asked: “Why write about sculpture? Why not just show the photographs?”
‘Helaine Blumenfeld / Henry Moore: A Dialogue 1985-2015’, Bowman Sculpture, 6 Duke Street, St James’s, London SW1, until 30th June 2015
Thirty years ago a very special and important joint exhibition of work by these two artists took place at the Alex Rosenberg Gallery, New York. To celebrate this anniversary Bowman Sculpture are showing their work together including previously unexhibited works from private collections. It is great opportunity to see how these sculptors complement each other while remaining different.
