Henry Moore: The Helmet Heads

Wallace Collection, London

NOW CLOSED

Henry Moore’s regular visits to the Wallace Collection armoury began with his arrival in London as a student in 1921, and continued for the rest of his life. For the first time, this display pairs his Helmet Head sculptures with the pieces of armour that inspired them. Find out more from the Wallace Collection’s website.
