page 76 REVIEW / SPRING 201149PRIVATE VIEW lasting impression is one of peacefulness- the mother gazes tranquilly towards thehorizon - a universal factor in many ofMoore's figures.Moore famously took cues from nature.Indeed, visitors to his studio at The HenryMoore Foundation can see many of theobjects he collected while out strolling inthe surrounding countryside, amongthem stones, bones, shells and pieces ofdriftwood. The inspiration behind LockingPiecewas actually two small stoneslocked together, and it is fascinating toequate this imposing hunk of bronze withthe rocks and pebbles found at the PerryGreen workshops.Moore's conviction that a sculptureshould have a sense of mystery, andshould hold the viewer's attention for aslong as possible as he or she attemptedto find meaning, is perfectly demonstratedby Large Totem Head. Its sexualsuggestiveness caused a stir when a castof the work was given by a Germandepartment store chain to the city ofNuremberg. However, Moore roundlyrejected psychoanalytic readings of hiswork, declaring: "If I was psychoanalysedI might stop being a sculptor." While attempting to unravel themysteries of some of Moore's mostmonumental works in Hatfield House'sfine landscaped gardens, one can onlyimagine how much Moore would haveapproved of such a setting.

Many ofthese are on display in Tate Britain'sClore Gallery and more can be viewed inthe Prints and Drawings Room.Tate Liverpool, the 'Tate of the North',was intended to be the home of thenational collection of modern art in thenorth of England. It was to have adistinct identity from the Tate in London. Opened in 1988, Tate Liverpool is abeautiful art gallery that exhibits the verybest of modern and contemporary art.Situated at the Albert Dock, a WorldHeritage site, the gallery has magnificentviews over the river Mersey and isconveniently located within walkingdistance of Liverpool's top attractions. By the late 1980s it was clear the Tate Collection had hugelyoutgrown the Millbank site and it was decided that there shouldbe a new galleryin London to display theinternational moderncomponent of the Tate Collection.One collection, fourvery different galleriesMillbank, Bankside, Porthmeor Beach and Albert Dock.
