Henry Moore at Houghton Hall

Wednesday 1 May 2019 to Sunday 29 September 2019
See website for details

In a unique collaboration with the Henry Moore Foundation, Houghton Hall in Norfolk presents this major exhibition HENRY MOORE AT HOUGHTON HALL: NATURE AND INSPIRATION – the first significant show of the artist’s work in East Anglia.

Curated by Sebastiano Barassi, the Henry Moore Foundation’s Head of Collections & Exhibitions, the exhibition will include several monumental outdoor pieces in the grounds of the house, as well as a selection of smaller works, models and etchings, which will be shown in the ground floor gallery spaces. There will also be sculptural interventions in the State Rooms, particularly in The Stone Hall. Highlights include many of Moore’s most celebrated works such as Large Reclining Figure 1984, The Arch 1963-69, Three Piece Sculpture: Vertebrae 1968-69 and Upright Motive No.8 1955-56.

Lord Cholmondeley, owner of Houghton Hall, said: ”It is a great accolade for Houghton to have the Henry Moore Foundation involved in this year’s exhibition. We feel honoured that the Foundation are lending such a range of important work and have agreed to curate the show for us. We are also extremely grateful to our sponsors, particularly the Gagosian Gallery.”

Godfrey Worsdale, Director, Henry Moore Foundation, said: “The Foundation is delighted that Henry Moore’s work will be seen in the remarkable surroundings of Houghton Hall. Over recent years, Houghton has become increasingly recognised for the platform it gives to artists, and in particular to the work of sculptors. Henry Moore was frequently engaged by the relationship of his work with architecture, and always pleased to see his monumental forms in natural light and settings; this exhibition will enable both to be seen to magnificent effect.”

(Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays – 1st May-19th July)

(Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays only – 20th July onwards)
