Sculptor Henry Moore (1898–1986) is the sort of big name artist whose fame and penchant for accessible if abstract forms make his work dismissible in some quarters. But it is precisely his blend of the populist and avant-garde that has allowed his art to wear well over time. The pieces here are typically Moore: curvaceous, monumental and suggestive of the female figure in all its prelapsarian fecundity. The twist here is bringing sculptures meant for the outdoors indoors, putting the objects within caressable distance of the viewer.
