Art Pick of the Week: Large Two Forms

Every week we’re sharing one of our favourite artworks for you to see on your next visit to the AGO. Check out this week’s art pick, Large Two Forms, by artist Henry Moore.

Henry Moore, Large Two Forms, Grange Park.

This long weekend, we invite you to take a stroll through the beautiful Grange Park and take in the summery scenery – the trees, dogs and the monumental sculptural work of Henry Moore’s Large Two Forms.

In the summer of 2017, Large Two Forms made the move from the corner of McCaul and Dundas Streets – where it lived since 1974 – to the charming Grange Park. The sensuous curves of this larger-than-life sculpture invite visitors to interact with and explore this bronze giant.

 

Much of the fascination of Moore’s late works stems from the fact that they are abstract forms with bodily references – the pieces of Large Two Forms, for example, resemble giant pelvic bones.

See other works by Henry Moore in the Henry Moore Sculpture Centre which comprises the world’s largest public collection of Moore’s works, including drawings, prints, original plasters and bronzes. And stay tuned each week for a new Art Pick.
