Henry Moore (1898-1986) Moore was born in 1898 in Yorkshire and started studying in 1919 at the Leeds School of Art (now Leeds College of Art). In 1921 he won a scholarship to study at the Royal College of Art in London. While in London, Moore extended his knowledge of primitive art and sculpture, studying the ethnographic collections. In the 1930s he started teaching at the Royal College. At the outbreak of the Second World War he moved to Herfordshire, where he stayed for the rest of his life. He took part in several documenta in Kassel. His sculptural works are expressive abstractions of the human body, predominantly female figures. Many international museums own his woks, such as the Tate Gallery in London, the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, or the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art near Copenhagen. (nlu)

Printed by Lacouriere and Frélaut, Paris, it was published by Raymond Spencer for the Henry Moore Foundation. Another work from this series is in the permanent collection of Tate Modern, London. This print features full margins and is matted and framed, with the plate measuring 6 ¼ x 11 inches. It is in overall good condition with no evidence of tears or repairs. Henry Moore (British, 1898-1986) Often regarded as the father of modern British sculpture, Henry Moore’’’’s large-scale bronze and marble sculptures can be found in public parks and plazas around the world. Working in various styles and mediums, Moore is perhaps best known for his highly abstract and interpretive renditions of the human figure, often portrayed in the reclining position. He was influenced by Classical, Pre-Columbian, and African art, and by Surrealism; his biomorphic style has been compared that of Salvador Dalí and Jean Arp. Moore was a longtime friend and colleague of fellow sculptor Barabara Hepworth, having met at the Leeds School of Art around 1919. He also admired the work of Constantin Brancusi, whose organic abstract style resonated with Moore’’’’s belief that observation of nature is essential to artistic creation. Moore himself inspired many artists including his former studio assistants Anthony Caro and Richard Wentworth. His works are displayed in many sculpture gardens and public locations around the world.
