Exhibition of the week: Moore Rodin, Henry Moore Foundation, Perry Green
Friday 05 April 2013
For the first time, another sculptor, Auguste Rodin, has moved in to challenge the right of Henry Moore's sculptures to rule over the fields of this rural estate.
The outcome is that Moore comes out seeming grave and Rodin lighter on his feet. Rodin was a modeller, Moore a carver. With Moore, you see the flowing lines; with Rodin, you are caught short by the detailing.
In the fields, Monument to the Burghers of Calais looks more restlessly engaging than ever: everywhere we stand gives us a different take on the drama of the piece. Of Moore's work, Large Figure in a Shelter is his finest hand.
