In collaboration with the Henry Moore Foundation, 'Henry Moore: The Helmet Heads' is the first major exhibition to explore the great twentieth-century British sculptor’s fascination with armour. Ground-breaking new research reveals that Moore’s long relationship with the Wallace Collection directly inspired the creation of his celebrated Helmet Head sculptures.

This is the first time that Moore’s helmet-related works, comprising over sixty sketches, drawings, maquettes and full-sized sculptures in plaster, lead and bronze, have been comprehensively assembled, to be juxtaposed with the Renaissance armour that inspired them.
