Teaser trailer

The Henry Moore Foundation team join forces with Museum Beelden aan Zee to install the exhibition.

Organised in partnership with Museum Beelden aan Zee, this large-scale retrospective provides a unique insight into Moore’s creative process and use of materials, focusing on the influence of nature on his work.

The exhibition features almost eighty works from the collection of the Henry Moore Foundation, including carvings in stone and wood, sculptures cast in lead, bronze, fibreglass and concrete, and a selection of natural forms from Moore’s studio. Together, the works show how Moore’s choice of material affected the shape, size, and subject of his sculpture.

The Museum Beelden aan Zee is the only Dutch museum with an exclusive focus on modern international sculpture. It is situated just off a 3km stretch of beach, with many of its galleries and terraces overlooking the North Sea.
