Henry Moore: Prints
168 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116
BOSTON, MA – On view in Childs Gallery’s new Print Department at 168 Newbury Street, Henry Moore: Prints presents an impressive array of etchings and lithographs by the famed British artist. Best remembered as a sculptor of figurative semi-abstraction, Moore also produced numerous prints during his career, often of his wildly popular reclining and seated figures. Henry Moore: Prints features several examples of these ubiquitous forms, including the monumental Stone Reclining Figure (also a rare artist proof), as well as animals, interiors, and mothers with children – another frequent motif after the birth of Moore’s daughter in 1946. The exhibition also demonstrates the artist’s progression from early work principally concerned with mass, to later figures, pierced through with openings to examine space.
The exhibition is on view in our upstairs Print Department through April 25, 2021.
