Now available again, this collection of Henry Moore’s plasters, drawings, and wood and stone sculptures offers a unique perspective on the artist’s creative and technical process.
Henry Moore is most celebrated for his monumental outdoor sculptures which can be seen in many major cities around the world. Lesser known are the sculptor’s plaster pieces, which represent an important stage in the development of his work leading up to the final bronze sculptures. In this book, Moore’s sculptures are presented alongside a generous selection of his drawings and carvings made during the last decades of his life. Commentary by leading scholars offers readers a deeper understanding of the artist’s approach to his work and the evolution of his worldview.
