'Henry Moore in a Sheep Meadow'

Red Grooms

2002 - metal: bronze

Font Size: AAA

'Henry Moore in a Sheep Meadow' is a humorous tribute to the famed English sculptor, who preferred his sculptures (with their horizontal, organic compositions relating to land masses) placed on sites in the rolling contours of the countryside. Some pieces were installed outside of Moore’s studio amidst herds of grazing sheep. Here Moore has been metamorphosed into a sculpture resembling his own. This work is a fine example of the many artists, sports figures, tradesmen and others Grooms has portrayed with affection, good humor and respect.
