Biomorhism is a term for a 20th century art movement in which abstract images or designs are suggestive of organic shapes found in nature. Biomorphism can be linked to Art Nouveau and Surrealism. The term originated in 1935 with British writer, Geoffrey Grigson, and was used by Alfred Barr in a 1936 exhibition of Cubism and Abstraction. Artists whose work is biomorphic include sculptors Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi and Barbara Hepworth; and painters Yves Tanguy, Desmond Morris and Robert Matta.<br>
