Henry Moore’s Family Group: Art and Rehabilitation in an Age of Transition

Made for a school in Hertfordshire in 1948-49, Henry Moore’s Family Group was a symbol of humanity, regeneration and hope in the years following the devastation of the Second World War. Dr Hannah Higham reflects on the origins of the sculpture, Moore’s own circumstances, and what his work during this ‘transitional age’ might teach us as we face the uncertain times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
