The works of Henry Moore are a familiar presence in cities throughout the world. Conceived from the outset in terms of outdoor settings, his sculptures blend landscape forms and those of the human figure in an unmistakably personal way. Even before the Second World War, Moore came to be regarded as the most important sculptor working in Britain; he now ranks as one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. This book presents an unfamiliar view of Moore. Focusing on his wood and stone carvings, plasters and drawings, it examines the working processes that resulted in his well-known monumental public sculptures. Of no less importance were the drawings Moore made throughout his career; a generous selection of which is included here. Along with 120 colour plates, commentary by curators of the Henry Moore Foundation, essays by Moore experts and an illustrated chronology, this volume allows for a uniquely intimate glimpse of a major artist at work.
