Helaine Blumenfeld - Henry Moore : A Dialogue 1985-2015 (Hardcover) (Robert Bowman)
about this item
Both Blumenfeld and Moore are radical pioneers in carving who have each evolved their own distinctive vocabularies of form. 2015 marked the 30th anniversary of their seminal joint exhibition, A British Dialogue: From Perry Green to Cambridge, at the Alex Rosenburg Gallery, New York. To celebrate, Bowman Sculpture presented a major exhibition reuniting their work, Helaine Blumenfeld / Henry Moore: A Dialogue 1985-2015. This book was created as a record of that show. It takes a fresh look at the legacy of Moore as one of the greatest British artists, as well as his influence on Blumenfeld, one of Britain’s leading contemporary sculptors working in marble and bronze, who is often hailed as ‘the heir to Moore’, and her works as ‘the Moores of the future’. An introduction by Tom Flynn describes the ‘dialogue’ between Moore and Blumenfeld, along with the resonances or points of contrast between their styles and sensibilities. Stunning photography by Erio Forli and Julian Jans shows the sculpture at its best.
