Moore at Kew

With a Foreword by Robert Calvocoressi
This book marks an exhibition of 28 large sculptures placed throughout Kew’s unique 300 acre World Heritage Site landscape. This exhibition, the most substantial of its kind ever to be mounted in London, sets Henry Moore’s remarkable work against a variety of striking backdrops, from formal gardens and great glasshouses to the spectacular arboretum.

Extensively illustrated, the book will encourage readers to engage with the sculptures and landscape on several levels, and will serve as a fitting memorial to this unique exhibition.
