Henry Moore, 1981
Reclining Figure by Henry Moore is located at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. A gift from “The Angels of the Arts” to the Center, it is a splendid example of the renowned sculptor’s mature work. By designing a void in the mass of his Reclining Figure, Moore encourages us to see that space around the figure is as important as solid material. Through his mastery of open and closed form, Moore has captured the dignity and living force of a woman.
It is easy to see the pre-Columbian influence in Moore’s work; simple, massive, deeply human figures are clearly represented in his Reclining Figure. The works of this artist may be seen in New York City’s Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
