In addition to Prints and Portfolios, there will be an exhibition in the Mezzanine Gallery looking at Henry Moore's associations with a younger generation of sculptors, including Anthony Caro, Isaac Witkin, Ralph Brown, Hubert Dalwood and Geoffrey Clarke, for whom Moore was, as the critic Herbert Read described, ‘in some sense a parent'. Many were taught by him, visited him, worked for him, used him as a referee for art school and teaching positions, exhibited alongside him, and initially defined their work in relation to his. Through correspondence, papers, drawings and sculptures, drawn from our own archive and other collections (as well as oral history accounts) the exhibition will explore these artists' various connections with Moore.
