Henry Moore at Tate Britain
You may think you know sculptor Henry Moore’s work from his great public artworks of abstract, reclining figures found in sculpture parks and other open spaces around the country. However, the Tate’s superb retrospective is full of smaller works, and shows Moore’s progress from his humble beginnings in the 1920s, and reveals the probing, innovative instincts of one of the giants of Twentieth century art. Until 8 August, Tate Britain, Millbank. www.tate.org.uk.
