Icon, Henry Moore

Those who have followed us for some time know that we love sculpture and that Henry Moore (1898-1986) is one of our favorite sculptors. He also has a trove of drawings that served as a basis for his sculptures, as well as stand alone work.  Interestingly, Cezanne's nudes were an early influence on his work.  His sculptures are iconic and grace the best museums in the world but recently he has had renewed attention given that the British stalwart Burberry chose to feature a retrospective of his work as part of their Fall 2017 exhibit.  This has led to a collaboration with design publication Cabana, whose latest issue features three different covers of Moore's drawings. The above photo is of a signed Moore lithograph in our personal collection, "Man and Woman", 1973-74, found at auction, of course.   And we can continue to dream about owning a sculpture.......
