In the 1960s, Moore embraced new materials and techniques which enabled him to work on an increasingly monumental scale. He incorporated a greater degree of abstraction in his work and satisfied an enormous global demand for his art, which sometimes generated controversy.

This exhibition will feature rarely seen sculptures, drawings, graphics and a wealth of archive material drawn entirely from the Henry Moore Foundation collections to illuminate the innovation of an artist at the height of his career.

Of the 30 sculptures on show, highlights include the never-before-exhibited plaster for Large Spindle Piece (1968), and the working models for some of Moore's most important, international commissions. Over 20 drawings and graphics will reveal Moore’s incredible use of colour and experiments with new materials such as felt-pens.
