Reclining Figures: Angels

About the Exhibition

Henry Moore’s (1898-1986, b.Yorkshire, England) fundamental idea in creating Reclining Figures: Angels (1979) was to demonstrate the contrapuntal tension inherent in a reclining figure that turns its head, body, and limbs in different directions. The sculpture stands 7’2”. “Most everything I do,” he said, “I intend to make on a large scale if I am given the chance…size itself has its own impact, and physically we can relate more strongly to a big sculpture than to a small one.”
