Sculptures by Henry Moore in New York Botanical Garden

While sorting through some images of last summer, I came across  photographs I took while visiting the  New York Botanical Garden , where twenty works by the British sculptor Henry Moore were on exhibit.   Moore in America is currently at the Atlanta Public Garden through October 31, 2009.

Amid the extensive collection of books about Moore in the NYBG’s bookstore,   I was surprised to learn that Moore designed textiles at the close of World War Two.   Visit the Henry Moore Foundation website to see images of his textile works and a photograph of his wife, Irina Moore, sewing one of his fabric designs into curtains for their home!
