BRUNSWICK, ME.- The Bowdoin College Museum of Art presents Henry Moore – The Drawings: Works on Paper from the Henry Moore Family Collection, an international exhibition organized by Hauser & Wirth New York, London, Zürich in collaboration with the Moore Family. This exhibition also features two significant drawings on loan from the Yale University Art Gallery, and one sculpture from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art collection. Henry Moore – The Drawings will be on view at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art from July 22 through October 3, 2010.

By the 1930s, British sculptor Henry Moore (1898–1986) had achieved international recognition for his monumental figures, organic forms imbued with classical references that would become his lifelong subjects. But drawing was always central for Moore, a way of “tapping himself for the initial idea.” From his days as an art student, he remained committed to drawing from life. While Moore frequently drew what he called “ideas for sculpture,” these were rarely direct studies for three-dimensional work. Henry Moore – The Drawings highlights Moore’s prodigious talent as a draftsman, featuring works on paper from six decades primarily from the Henry Moore Family Collection. As these demonstrate, the artist pushed figuration to its limits without ever completely relinquishing the human form.

Henry Moore – The Drawings offers Museum visitors the rare opportunity to see an outstanding selection of forty-eight works on paper by one of the twentieth century’s most celebrated artists.
