Product story

This is the first book to look exclusively at the plaster works of Henry Moore. Until recently the plasters have been regarded as preparatory stages in Moore's sculptural process rather than works of art in their own right. In fact they convey a sense of immediacy and complexity of texture that is less prominent in the finished bronzes. Acutely aware of the changes that occurred in his sculptures, once he cast them from plaster to bronze, Moore made a number in plaster only.

Anita Feldman, a leading authority on the artist, reappraises the significance of the plasters while sculptor Malcolm Woodward recalls his time assisting Moore in their production. Illustrated with plasters from three decades and including commentaries from Anthony Caro, Phillip King and Derek Howarth, this important book uncovers a little-known aspect of Moore's work.

160 pages, 160 illustrations, 28x24cm.
