A collection of some of the finest works by acclaimed Castleford-born sculptor Henry Moore is to go on display at Harewood.

The exhibition has began to take shape with the Large Reclining Figure being assembled at the front of the stately home.

In total 13 works on paper and 11 sculptures from the Arts Council Collection are being moved to the estate, north of Leeds, with the showpiece sculpture in place with a week to spare before the Tour de France.

Stage one of the Tour’s Grand Depart will ceremonially start at Harewood after riders cycle from Leeds on Saturday July 5.

Lord Harewood, David Lascelles, said: “What a great opportunity to show the world the work of one of Yorkshire’s greatest artists in one of the county’s most beautiful historic settings.”
