Went with my youngest to see the Hepworth at Tate Britain and was impressed yet again. We also took a wander around the rest of the gallery, including the Turner and the Henry Moore sections. These are all free and well worth a visit even if you don’t fancy the exhibition that’s showing or just don’t want to pay for your art.
But the Henry Moore rooms were wonderful – there is something magical about such very large sculptures that turn us all back into small children.
Sculpture is so very interactive. You have to move around it, look through all of the holes and, with th every best pieces, long to touch.
From the largest Henry Moore to the smallest sculpture imaginable, it was all wonderful and gave my girl lots of ideas for the latest art project.
I’m not at all convinced by the last exhibition’s suggestion that he remained figurative with not a hint of abstract. And on a leisurely afternoon, the building itself is just a pleasure to mooch about with a couple of good cafes as well.
