Until 31 May 2020

The sculptor Henry Moore and the photographer Bill Brandt were born just six years apart, at the turn of the 20th century, and met during World War II. Despite working in different mediums, the two great artists had much in common, including passionate engagement with British society and landscape. Over 200 works, some rarely seen, explore this relationship, from people sleeping in the Underground during the war, which Moore drew, and Brandt photographed, to Brandt’s pictures of Moore and Moore’s own, rarely seen photo collages.
