Touring exhibition

Bill Brandt/Henry Moore

Yale Center for British Art, USA

Photographer Bill Brandt (1904-1983) and Henry Moore (1898-1986) first met during the Second World War when they both created images of civilians sheltering from the Blitz in the London Underground.

Widely disseminated through news media and exhibitions, their haunting depictions of this human crisis became defining images of the war.

This major exhibition begins with these early works and traces the artists’ parallel and intersecting paths across the post-war years, revealing their interdisciplinary range and the relationships between sculpture, photography, drawing and collage.
