Visit the Yorkshire Moores

1 August 2006 by Dawn

Apparently today is National Yorkshire Day.

This reminded me – on a recent web team outing to Tate Liverpool to see the Bruce Nauman exhibition we also stumbled across the collection display, Henry Moore: Natural Form, which I thought was quite beautfiul. Must go back and spend some more time there. Visitors to the Tate might also want to take a trip to the Walker Art Gallery, to see Moore’s sculpture, Falling Warrior. (NB. Actually I’ve just found out that it’s currently at Fundacio “la Caixa”, Barcelona and won’t be back at the Walker until November – so you might want to wait until then!)

I can’t let the moment pass without  congratulating rugby league team Huddersfield Giants who beat fellow Yorkshire heavyweights Leeds Rhinos this weekend in the Challenge Cup semi-finals. They will be joining Merseyside’s very own St Helens in the final at Twickenham in August.  (You can recognise Saints by the Capital of Culture logo on their shorts).

Other favourite Yorkshire things (Sean Bean aside) include Leeds Armouries, West Yorkshire Playhouse and the Brontes’ Haworth.

Falling Warrior by Henry Moore

Falling Warrior … or could it be a Leeds player overcome by a Huddersfield tackle?
