Erik Nitsche: Large Spindle Piece Sculpture
This artwork features a bronze sculpture entitled "Large Spindle Piece" that was created by Henry Moore in 1969. Henry Moore was born at Castleford (Yorkshire), England in 1898. Between 1930 and 1945, he was known as the most important figure in British art. His international reputation became established in the 1940s, as he won many International Sculpture Prizes. Thoroughout his career, he had many public commissions, such as his Screening Wall and Draped Reclining Figure for the Time-Life Building in London. He also did work for numerous parks and churches. Moore once wrote, "For me a work must first have a vitality of its own ... an intense life of its own, independent of the object it may represent." As is apparent in this artwork, his work seems to balance a feeling of weight and repose with one of dynamic force. Henry Moore died in 1986.
