Hot Art: More Moore

Henry Moore's Bird Basket

OCTOBER 23 TO FEBRUARY 6 Heralded as one of the most important artists of his time, Henry Moore is well known in Toronto—the Art Gallery of Ontario has a large collection of his sculptures and sketches. This month the AGO offers new insight into the British artist through The Shape of Anxiety: Henry Moore in the 1930s, an exhibition of more than 50 of Moore’s early works, many of which have never been seen in Canada. In striking contrast to the seductive, curving forms commonly associated with Moore, these pieces come from a more tumultuous, rapidly changing time, evoking the political, sexual and psychological anxieties of the post-WWI age.
