Large Standing Figure: Knife Edge by Henry Spencer Moore

This prolific sculptor made work in wood, stone, and bronze. As a student in London, Henry Moore absorbed the influences around him, both the work of his contemporaries and the pre-Columbian and ancient art in the British Museum. It is easy to see a connection between Large Standing Figure and ancient art. This sculpture is displayed at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.

The soft curves and bulges of Large Spindle Piece reflect Henry Moore’s abiding interest in organic form, yet its pointed projections—echoing machine parts—demonstrate that he was not unaffected by modern technology.
