Albert Moore: Of Beauty and Aesthetics

Albert Moore: Of Beauty and Aesthetics

Details

York Art Gallery presents the first monographic exhibition of York born artist Albert Joseph Moore since the artist’s death in 1893.

Featuring more than 20 paintings and watercolours, it highlights the beautiful and classical women for which the artist is most famous and demonstrate the modernity of Moore’s approach.

Albert Moore was one of the leading artists of the Aesthetic movement who prioritised mood, colour harmony and beauty of form over subject matter to create ‘art for art’s sake’. The exhibition explores Albert Moore’s career and body of work using the latest research into his work by leading experts. It includes examples of Moore's youthful Pre-Raphaelite works as well as the hauntingly beautiful classical figures of his mature style

Organised by York Museums Trust and Museum De Buitenplaats, in Eelde, Netherlands, the exhibition features the stunning and ambitious ‘Midsummer’, 1887, from the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery, Bournemouth alongside other key works from public and private collections across the UK.
