New Bobby Moore exhibition opens

Photographs of Bobby Moore which have been acquired by the National Portrait Gallery and have gone on display to mark this year’s World Cup and the 25th anniversary of his death.

The exhibition includes some unusual images of a working footballer: winning the ball from George Best, playing chess with Franz Beckenbauer. And the more everyday: lying on a sofa watching TV, posing with family on the drive of an extravagant house.

The photographs have been acquired from the collection of Roberta Moore, his daughter. She said: “My father emanated grace both on and off the pitch. He was self-effacing, kind and humble with a dry humour and tremendous sense of fun. This display is a wonderful tribute to the high esteem in which he is held.”

Bobby Moore: First Gentleman of English Football is on display in Room 32 of the NPG, 5 March-January 2019.
