The Story of Shelley sitting with Moore: Memory of Moore & her Great Grandfather
Drawings from the AGO Art Gallery of Ontario collection
Creative Process of Courage & Triumph Homage to Henry Moore… Mr. Moore and Mr. Gardiner fought a World War together… Moore survived… Gardner did not…
Mr. Gardner was the great grandfather of Shelley Batcules.
Shelley never realized Gardner and Moore fought together until one day after 20 years of separation from her mother, did Shelley come to learn why she had a deep creative connection to Henry Moore. For the first time Shelley's mother revealed a piece of her hidden past. All the cherished hours sitting and drawing Henry Moore's powerful women all made sense.
