We recently exhibited our collection of work by the British artist Henry Moore at the National Gallery of Arts in Tirana. The exhibition comprised of 80 framed prints, which had been produced between 1949 and 1983. The prints were grouped into eight distinct categories, which included Moore’s most popular themes; Mother and Child and Reclining Figure, five maquettes and one working model. The exhibition included nine contextual photographs of sculptures at Perry Green (Moore’s home) as well as prints of the artist at work in his studio. Moore is one of the most famous British artists ever hosted by the gallery.
Mr. David Mitchinson, one of Henry Moore’s closest collaborators, visited Tirana and spoke with artists and art students. He shared his extraordinary experience of working with one of the most renowned British artists and spoke about Moore’s life. Watch the above video of David guiding you through the exhibition.
A number of workshops were also held to complement the exhibition:
- A workshop dedicated to artworks by teenagers and children
- Henry Moore – the printmaker workshop led by UK artist Sarah Gillett and designed for art students.
