Bill Brandt / Henry Moore

Friday 07 February 2020Sunday 31 May 2020

Exhibition exploring the parallel and intersecting paths of photographer Bill Brandt and the sculptor Henry Moore. They first met during the Second World War, when both created images of civilians sheltering from the Blitz in the London Underground. This exhibition brings together over 200 works highlighting the relationships between sculpture, photography, drawing and collage revealed through Brandt and Moore's shared interests in the subjects and themes of labour, society, industry, the British landscape and the human body. Moore's celebrated Reclining Figure sculptures and Brandt's well-known photographs of coal miners and their families in Durham and Yorkshire are on display, alongside rare original colour transparencies by Brandt, and Moore’s little-known photo collages.
