Natural Form presents work from the Tate Collection and The Henry Moore Foundation, focusing on his most abstract sculptures and drawings and their relationship to forms found in nature. This is the first time such an in-depth collection of Moore's work has been presented in Liverpool.
Moore had an acute eye for the sculptural qualities of objects such as bones, shells and stones and his appreciation of natural forms first began to manifest itself in his work during the 1930s. This was an extension of his belief in a universal form of art that could transcend national, social and political boundaries. All that was required was an open mind to the expressive power of shapes and textures.
