Product story

Henry Moore is one of the key figures in modern sculpture. His works, both representational and abstract, are some of the most significant and well-known works of the twentieth century. Drawing consistently on the observed world and simultaneously inspired by Surrealism, mythology and non-objective art, Moore developed a unique sculptural language.

This beautifully illustrated book examines Moore's place in twentieth-century art history. Christa Lichtenstern's authoritative study explores the sculptor's guiding principles and considers his artistic development, from his study of Greek antiquity and his fascination with early Italian sculpture to his interest in English heritage and culture.

Rich in new and unpublished material, this maginificent book is a landmark in Henry Moore studies.
