Henry Moore with Bystander

This magnificent Henry Moore is at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in the sculpture garden. I suppose technically the “bystander” is a “sitter”. The juxtaposition of poses and scale, along with the empty chair, said something to me.  The sculpture is “Family Group” from 1948-1949. (More on Henry Moore at MOMA here. More on Henry Moore here.)

    Hum…I am not sure but I see a hidden meaning or message behind this artistic expression…

      Could be, not that familiar with Moore’s aesthetic beyond the outer elements…

          It’s a very well defined style, yet manages to convey different sensations through each piece, he’s really good.
