Zenfolio | Jeremy Cooper - oliophoto | Rodin, Moore and others at Compton Verney, March 2014

31 photos
Exhibition of works by Auguste Rodin and Henry Moore.

Great to be able to get up close to the Monument to the Burghers of Calais, as Rodin intended - they are usually mounted high up outside The Palace of Westminster.

The other works are (in order): Jean d'Aire, Monumental Nude (Rodin), with The Arch (Moore) on the other side of the lake; Eve (Rodin); Walking Man on a Column (Rodin); Upright Motive No.9 (Moore); The Fallen Caryatid with Stone (Rodin); Three Piece Sculpture, Vertebrae (Moore); Seated Woman (Moore).

The still life of paper mugs and a bottle was retrieved by kids who had left them there temporarily - not litter!

The photos of the sculptures are not supposed to be like a catalogue of the works, but to show aspects of them in the particular context of Compton Verney on a sunny afternoon. The other images also set the context of a day out there.
