Audio slideshow: Henry Moore Textiles

Henry Moore is best known for his dominating sculptures, which can be found across Europe and America. But the West Yorkshire-born artist also spent 10 years of his life designing textiles for manufacturer Zika Ascher.

Moore's fabrics have been brought together with sketches, paintings and small sculptures for an exhibition at Norwich's Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. Take a look with the centre's head of exhibitions and collections, Amanda Geitner.


Henry Moore Textiles can be seen at the Sainsbury Centre until Sunday, 29 August 2010.

Slideshow production by Zoe Applegate. Publication date 22 July 2010.
