Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two very different volumes celebrate the centennial of the English sculptor Henry Moore (1898-1986). Hedgecoe, a longtime friend of the artist and a noted photographer, has produced a book of images with few words. First comes 50 pages of Moore's forms as seen in the landscape, forms that inspired him; then a generous selection of "major works" in excellent and evocative photographs; and lastly 780 thumbnail images of Moore's sculpture forms. Not a catalogue raisonne but an inventory of Moore's "amazing fund of ideas," this is clearly a very personal and satisfying book, but it is limited to visual appreciation. Celebrating Moore presents 278 items covering the full spectrum of Moore's career selected from among the 12,000 held by the Henry Moore Foundation. Catalog entries are preceded by a substantial and useful essay on the foundation's collection. Both volumes are celebrations, Hedgecoe's the more individual and attractive, although of less scholarly content and value. Given that Moore is very well published, libraries should prefer Celebrating Moore for its text and catalog entries.--Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Lib.
Booknews
The impact of this lovingly prepared book is startling: narration and visuals combine to allow, seemingly, a walk around the artist as well as his work, and an experience of their fundamental power. Published to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Moore's birth in 1898, the volume is both personal and authoritative. In the first section, photographer Hedgecoe, friends with Moore for 35 years, presents personal reminiscences, quotes from Moore, and an incisive photographic essay highlighting some of the sources of Moore's vision. Following is a display of many of Moore's major works, interspersed with pages from the artist's personal sketchbooks. The final section comprises a chronologically arranged compendium of 750-plus photographs of Moore's sculptures, each accompanied by dates and dimensions.
