The Henry Moore Foundation will present Moore Rodin, a major exhibition which compares the work of Moore with one of the pioneers of modern sculpture – Auguste Rodin, running from 29 March – 27 October 2013.
This will be the first time that another artist has been shown alongside Henry Moore in the Gallery and 70 acres of gardens at Perry Green in Hertfordshire, Moore’s home for over 40 years until his death in 1986.

Cast in 1904, this great bronze, The Thinker, has been exhibited since 1923 in the museum garden. It is exposed to bad weather, the climate, and pollution, all of which attack the layer of protection and the patina of the work. Discover the whole operation of restoration, which takes place at intervals of about ten years.
