Henry Moore in Miniature

The Holburne Museum Bath, UK

In partnership with the Henry Moore Foundation, the Holburne Museum will dedicate an entire retrospective to Moore’s sculptures that could fit in the hand, with over 60 works that do not exceed 30cm in size. At the heart of Moore’s practice from his earliest years to the end was the directness of working on a small scale, whether it was carving small stones or pieces of wood, casting lead, modelling in clay or, as was usual in later years, modelling in plasticine around a found stone or bone to be cast in bronze.
