Henry Moore Tapestries
Henry Moore, renowned throughout the world for his sculpture and drawings, was one of the few modern artists to extend his work into the realm of tapestry.
Working closely with the Tapestry Studio at West Dean College, Kent, Moore authorised a series of works based on his drawings. The brilliance of the drawings is confirmed in their transition into large tapestries, seven or eight times the size of the original. These lost nothing of their power in the process, retaining all the textural qualities of the drawing, from a smudgy chalk line to a decisive pen stroke.
