Tracing the Century: Tate Liverpool

Went to the Tate Liverpool last week and saw the new exhibition 'Tracing the Century' which is based around the human anatomy and artists depictions of it. The majority of the works are sketches in preparation for other works. Many of the depictions of the human body are abstract and many are figurative. The works you see may surprise you, for example, I was surprised by the drawings by the British sculptor Henry Moore as his drawings are incredible and they also have a Henri Moore sculpture in the room next door to his drawings. I found the exhibition very interesting and a change from seeing so much contemporary art from the Liverpool Biennial 2012 which has now finished. There are many artists and over a hundred artworks on show many on first show since Tate acquired them. I only had fifteen minutes to dash round the exhibition room so what I saw of the exhibition was great but I will definitely be returning to view the whole exhibition again. Definitely worth a visit and it is going on till 20th January 2013 so there's plenty of time!
