Henry Moore: The Sculptor’s Drawing

Museo Novecento / Florence / Art

The monumental bronzes of Henry Moore, which see the abstraction of Brancusi joined with the humanism of Florentine masters Brunelleschi and Donatello, are his own form of modernism. This show, coming almost 50 years after Moore’s famous 1972 exhibition at Florence’s Forte di Belvedere, takes a graphic approach to the artist, pairing Moore’s sculptures and models with 70 of his drawings. Subjects of these lesser-known drawings range from natural forms—rocks, roots, animal bones, tree trunks—to the artist’s own hands. —J.V.

In conjunction with this exhibition, “Henry Moore in Toscana” is also on at the Museo Novecento until May 30.
