Great Art Is Not Perfect This catalog of Henry Moore's (1898-1986) work presents once again one of the great innovators of 20th century sculpture with selected works, among others from the collection of Tate Modern, London. The motto »Great Art Is Not Perfect« refers to Henry Moore's basic principle of observing and working along nature, and realizing his sculptural ideas in line with the true nature of the material. Moore was one of the most popular English artists, not just during his lifetime. Like no other, he stands for an explicitly humanistic idea of man. A cross-section of his sculptural work (together with a selection of drawings) at the Zentrum Paul Klee aims to bring back to memory the achievements of Henry Moore whilst spanning a bridge to the work of Paul Klee. Although the two artists had never met, they appear very closely related in their anti-academic stance, and both represent the idea of a creative process where their works develop in line with nature. Both avoided the debates of the avant-gardes regarding figuration and abstraction, and both, in view of this dispute, were concerned with maintaining an artistic personality whose work combines abstract and surrealist as well as classical and romantic elements. In this sense, both artists pointed the way to a postmodern—and now perceived as a completely natural—diversity of style. Exhibition: ZPK center Paul Klee, Berne, 29/1–25/5/2015
