The Henry Moore Courtyard offers a stylish outdoor space, paved with York stone and with discreet plantings facing Tate Britain, just steps away from Millbank and the River Thames.
For guests arriving at 45 Millbank from Atterbury Street, the Courtyard provides a dramatic venue approach. Leading from it, an entrance gives access to the Grand Foyer and main staircase. It is an attractive option for your London event in which to welcome your guests, use as an inspiring backdrop for photogrpahs, and simply to offer an outdoor area for guests to sit and take some air.
Prominently displayed within the public facing Courtyard is the imposing Henry Moore sculpture Two Piece Reclining Figure No. 1 1959 Bronze. Spotlit at night, it affords a focal point within the refurbished outdoor space.
Acclaimed sculptor and artist Sir Henry Moore (1898-1986) had a longstanding and significant relationship with Chelsea College of Art and Design. He was Head of Sculpture from 1932-39 and subsequently the College acquired this important artwork.
