This beautifully designed catalogue encompasses the most important themes to be found in the art of Henry Moore, one of the best known modern British masters and a superb sculptural draughtsman. It presents both his sculptural works and his works on paper, in a wide variety of media, from maquettes to finished works; from working sketches to finished drawings; from earliest student work to the maturity of the 1960s; and from tiny pebble carving to massive cast bronze. Written by some of the leading experts in the field, it includes a contribution by Ann Garrould, Henry Moore’s niece, who worked closely with her uncle and was intimately involved with the Henry Moore Foundation in its early days. Published to accompany the exhibition in May 2004 at Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, a large part of the book features works from the remarkable and varied collection of Robert and Lisa Sainsbury, subsequently given to the Sainsbury Centre at the University of East Anglia, Norwich. Moore’s sculptural monuments, reflecting his romantic response to nature, will always look best in a landscape setting, and some of the most spectacular pieces will be exhibited in the beautiful garden at Dulwich Picture Gallery against the backdrop of Sir John Soane’s famous building.
