Square shape with cut

Author: Henry Moore

Title: Square shape with cut (1974)

It is the first great work of contemporary art acquired by the city of Prato, such as to represent its symbol of modernity and the beginning of a new discourse on urban decoration.
Located in Piazza San Marco, with the Calvana mountains on the background, where the ancient walls had a gate towards Florence. This work stands out among those, by now many, present in our territory. Thirty large marble blocks, to which Moore, one of the greatest representatives of the twentieth century art, has given the semblance of an organic expansion, as if it was generated or animated by a force inside the matter.
