These two films are the second screening in a four-part series exploring sculptors of the 20th century presented in conjunction with the Gaston Lachaise exhibition. The films are followed by coffee and discussion, and are free with Museum admission.

Flesh in Ecstasy: Gaston Lachaise and the Women He Loved, 21 minutes
Taking as its focus Gaston Lachaise's striking Standing Woman statue, the film explores the artist's relationship with his model for the work: his wife and muse, Isabel Dutaud Nagel. The film includes quotes from the sculptor's passionate love letters and scenes of the statue's recent recasting at the Modern Art Factory in Brooklyn, NY.

Henry Moore and Landscape, 26 minutes
Footage of Moore’s sculptures at Yorkshire Sculpture Park is accompanied by the artist’s comments about his life, sculpture, favorite themes and subjects, and views on sculpture in relation to landscape. Moore’s sculptures are shown from various angles, revealing their positions in relation to the landscape.
