This is a remarkable evocation in full colour of the exhibition of Moore’s late monumental bronzes held in the Bagatelle Gardens, Paris, in 1992.

Over the years there have been many exhibitions of Moore’s work in cities and museums around the world, but the exhibition at the Bagatelle was unique: a magical combination of Moore’s monumental works set down in a park within a great city of the arts. Moore had a lifelong association with Paris, which began with a visit in 1922 while he was still a student, and his sculpture was exhibited there repeatedly during his lifetime.

Moore in the Bagatelle Gardens presents fifty stunning photographs by Michel Muller, one of Moore’s assistants, capturing the magical atmosphere of this exhibition. David Cohen’s introductory essay discusses particular works in the Paris show in relation to Moore’s ideas about sculpture and the open air.
