I first met the work of sculptor Henry Moore via the large Knife Edge bronze at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Later I saw an early biography film on his work, and have enjoyed it ever since.
One thing few appreciate about his work, unless they've seen it in person, is its complexity -- for a still photo can make it seem deceptively simple. But the complex curves in the surface of the sculptures, the interlocking of various segments, and the organic forms are surprisingly rich.
The Bronx Botanical Garden is now rejoicing in an "exhibit" of over 20 of Moore's large works, scattered around the many acres of the park, and I managed to see them all yesterday. What a treat. Here are just a few of them.
