An intriguing conversation exploring the relationship of Henry Moore’s career to that of Paul Klee is the focus of this handsome exhibition catalog accompanying the exhibition at Zentrum Paul Klee. Curators Sebastiano Barassi of the Henry Moore Foundation, Matthew Gale of the Tate Modern and Fabienne Eggelhofer of the Paul Klee Center have assembled a cross-section of Moore’s sculpture and paintings that demonstrate—though the two artists never met, their closely related anti-academic stance and shared idea of a natural creative process. Both artists avoided the avant-garde debates on figuration and abstraction, and both, argue the show’s curators, were concerned with allowing their work to combine abstract and surrealist, classical and romantic elements, in a sense, pointing the way toward postmodern stylistic diversity. With 80 images and essays by the three curators, this publication is a welcome addition to scholarship in the field.
