STATE MUSEUM OF ARTS OF UZBEKISTAN, 19 FEBRUARY – 30 MAY

Henry Moore was one of the most outstanding and well-known artists and sculptors of the XX century. In the State art museum of Tashkent British Council present a unique exhibition of Moore’s graphics that shows the main themes that interested him throughout his career spanning more than 60 years, highlighting his treatment of texture, light and depth of tone in the mediums of etching and lithography. ‘Henry Moore: The Printmaker’ consists of prints that were created between 1949 and 1983.
We have recorded an exhibition video guide narrated by David Mitchinson, a long standing friend of Moore and world class expert of his work, which is being continuously screened in the exhibition’s space (in English with Russian subtitles). The video guide will take you through key exhibition highlights and will focus on the main themes of Moore’s work.

Although Henry Moore is principally known for his sculpture, etchings and lithographs are a more intimate and equally important element of his creative process.

Moore’s road from complete anonymity to becoming one of the most respected artists of the 20th century is a rocky one, and it started in Castleford, Yorkshire.
