According to juror Susan Meiselas, Bill Brandt | Henry Moore is a “masterful work of scholarship.” Accompanying an exhibition at The Hepworth Wakefield, UK, this large-scale, richly illustrated book is a thoughtful examination of the interplay between two brilliant twentieth-century artists: Bill Brandt and Henry Moore, brought together while both creating work depicting civilians taking shelter in the London Underground during the Blitz. The book takes the viewer beyond their first encounter and through the artists’ postwar period, sequencing works together to show their intersecting paths. “I love the mix of materials—Moore’s illustrations, drawings, and sculptures in counterpoint to Brandt’s photographs—which highlights the interconnections of each man’s craft,” notes Meiselas. The catalogue makes clear the immediate influence the artists had on one another and “leads the viewer to resee Brandt’s nudes as sculptural form, abstracted into stone by Moore.”
