Uncover the history of Henry Moore’s relationship with Tate and how the collection of his work was formed
The first room of the Henry Moore display reveals the history of the artist’s relationship with Tate and how the collection of his work was formed.
Moore built a close relationship with the Gallery: he served as a Trustee for two terms from 1941–56, and two large-scale retrospective exhibitions of his work were held in 1951 and 1968.
The most recent exhibition in 2010 at Tate Britain re-affirmed Moore’s status as one of the leading artists of the twentieth century.
Henry Moore’s friends and supporters were pivotal in shaping Tate’s collection of Moore’s work. Moore also donated sets of prints to the gallery in 1976 and his most significant act of generosity was the presentation of 36 sculptures in 1978.
Today, the Tate collection owns over 600 works ranging in date from 1921 to 1984, and including drawings, prints, and sculptures in wood, stone and metal.
