Henry Moore at the Wallace Collection : The Helmet Head Series

Regular price £24.95
This book accompanies a 2019 exhibition at the Wallace Collection which explores the sculptor Henry Moore's fascination with armour at the Wallace Collection, an interest which fundamentally influenced his work over many years. In 1921 Moore set up his studio in Hampstead, not far from the Wallace Collection and often referred to the `many hours' he spent here, studying armour. Here he recognised what he called `universal organic forms.' He sensed that pieces of armour were `objects of power', sculptural forms whose vitality flowed from their function- to protect another vulnerable structure inside of them.

This richly illustrated catalogue, written by co-curators Tobas Capwell and Hannah Higham, follows the thematic structure of the exhibition and illuminates an unusual, relatively unknown, aspect of Henry Moore's work.
