YSP 5


Yorkshire Sculpture Park  This is another easy one to guess.. one of the permanent collection of Henry Moore sculptures at YSP. I can think of no better place to show these huge bronzes than a rolling hillside among the trees and grazing sheep. Henry Moore was born in nearby Castleford and often cited the influence of the West Yorkshire landscape on his development as a young artist. This piece is called 'Two Large Forms'. (Moore was particularly imaginative in his titles!)  Not, I think, entirely influenced by the landscape...

  2. Two sensual forms. I am not going to guess at what the sculpture portrays. You found a good angle to capture them.
