The Kemper Art Museum’s Spotlight Series of online essays invites both established and emerging scholars to offer an array of perspectives on a range of artworks in the Museum’s collection. Each season gallery talks provide visitors the chance to join the authors for deeper analysis and stimulating conversation. Tola Porter, PhD student in the Department of Art History and Archaeology in Arts & Sciences, will lead a discussion on Henry Moore's Reclining Figure (1933). Reclining Figure is an early example of Henry Moore’s exploration of the sculptural potential of the reclining female figure, a recurring motif throughout his entire career.
