Henry Moore

Henry Moore was born in England in 1898 and is considered to be one of the greatest sculptors of the twentieth century. He began studying at the Leeds School of Art in 1919, and in 1921, he received a scholarship to study at the Royal College of Art in London. His work was the subject of a solo exhibition at MoMA New York in 1946, and two years later he won the prestigious International Prize at the Venice Biennale. His monumental forms are usually soft abstractions of the human figure, especially the female body, and are located across the world. he passed away in 1986.

Henry Moore: Late Large Forms was published by Rizzoli New York in September 2012. It was written by Anita Feldman, the curator of the Henry Moore Foundation at Perry Green, and Ann Wagner, The Henry Moore Foundation Research Curator at the Tate Gallery, London.
