Seated Woman by Henry Moore
Live video cam

On February 22, 2012, the new terrace in front of The Fralin Museum of Art at the Univeristy of Virginia received its focal point in the form of a bronze sculpture by Henry Moore, a loan from the Henry Moore Foundation in England. Entitled Seated Woman, the over life-sized figure is an early example of the monumental bronzes that became a central element in Moore's work from the late 1950s until his death in 1986. Together with the renovated terraces of the Museum, Seated Woman will mark the entrance to the new John and Betsy Casteen Arts Grounds of the University.


Henry Moore, English, 1898–1986
Seated Woman, 1958–1959 (LH 440)
Bronze, 83 x 381⁄2 x 451⁄2 in, 211 x 97.8 x 115.6 cm
