Reclining Figure by Henry Moore is an iconic example of the British sculptor’s mature work and a 1984 gift from the Angels of the Arts, a major supporter of Segerstrom Center for the Arts. "Reclining Figure", like the majority of Moore’s public works in cities around the world, is based on the human figure – usually standing, sitting, or most ofter, reclining on a plinth.
Vital and mysterious, like the spirit embodied in Stonehenge, Moore’s reclining female forms are universal shapes to which everyone is subconsciously conditioned to respond; simple, massive, deeply human figures are clearly represented in his "Reclining Figure". This sculpture is at the end of Town Center Drive on Segerstrom Center's Orchestra Level Terrace.
The works of Henry Moore may be seen in New York City’s Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
