Henry Moore

Vision. Creation. Obsession.

Few twentieth-century sculptors created works as distinctive and recognizable as those of English sculptor Henry Moore (1898–1986). Deliberately seeking out the challenge of the monumental, and taking the whole of the outdoors as a field for his creativity, Moore drew inspiration from artists ranging from the Renaissance to the modern era to create some of the most ambitious and striking artworks of his age. This book presents an overview of Moore’s work, reproducing his sculptures in their settings to show how his use of natural forms and deliberate attempts to integrate his art with the landscape around it gave it a power and scale unmatched by the work of any other artist. The resulting book is both beautiful and awe-inspiring, a fitting tribute to a true modern master.
