Henry Moore Textiles at Pallant House Gallery

  • Comment

Pallant House Gallery’s new exhibition shows over 100 of Henry Moore’s fabric designs and textile drawings

Henry Moore Textiles explores fabrics, drawings, four large-scale textile wall panels and two sketchbooks of textile designs, some of which only came to light in 2006.

Better known for his large-scale reclining figures and wartime sketches of London Underground, Moore created a series of images inspired by some of his better known iconography - family groups, standing figures and seated mother-and-child - that could be exhibited on walls like paintings shortly after World War II.

The exhibition, which comes to Chichester this autumn includes a 1943 drawing Textile Design for ‘Fruit and Flowers’ that will be displayed alongside its only remaining fabric partner.

Exhibition: Henry Moore Textiles
Location: Pallant House Gallery, West Sussex, PO19 1TJ
Dates: 14 November 2009 - 21 February 2010
Admission: Adult £7.50
