This exhibition explores the parallel and intersecting paths of these two great artists of the 20th century.

The photographer Bill Brandt and the sculptor Henry Moore first met during the Second World War, when they both created images of civilians sheltering from the Blitz in the London Underground. These photographs by Brandt and drawings by Moore have become some of the most iconic images of the period. This exhibition explores their shared subjects including coal miners and their families, Stonehenge, and the body presented as landscape.

With almost 200 works ranging across sculpture, maquettes, photographs, drawings and collage, the exhibition includes Brandt’s rare colour transparencies and Moore’s little-known photo collages.

The exhibition is in collaboration with the Yale Center for British Art and the Hepworth Wakefield.

Principal Supporter: Simon Blakey
