Henry Moore: The Helmet HeadsNew research reveals that Henry Moore's long relationship with the Wallace Collection directly inspired his celebrated Helmet Head sculptures, so where better to show them together for the very first time? It's wonderful to see over sixty sketches, drawings, maquettes and full-sized sculptures in plaster, lead and bronze, juxtaposed with the Renaissance armour that inspired them. Henry Moore: The Helmet Heads reveals that armour - and what it represents - is a recurring theme in all of Moore's work, including his reclining figures, exploring ideas about power and strength, protection and vulnerability.
