Henry Moore Foundation awards grant to acquire sculpture
July 23, 2010
The Henry Moore Foundation recently awarded Historic New England a grant to support the acquisition of a Henry Moore sculpture for the Gropius House in Lincoln, Massachusetts. The grant of £7,000, approximately $10,000 USD, will go toward the permanent acquisition of the bronze reclining figure given by Moore to Walter and Ise Gropius in 1946. The bronze sculpture was passed down to the Gropiuses’ daughter, Ati Gropius Johansen. The sculpture has been returned to its original location in the living room at the Gropius House.
The Henry Moore Foundation is one of the United Kingdom’s leading art charities and awards grants to support art projects and exhibitions both in the U.K. and abroad.
Please contact the Development Office at 617-994-5951 or Development@HistoricNewEngland.org if you are interested in making a donation to assist Historic New England in permanently acquiring the sculpture.
