Overview

Celebrating Moore is the biggest single volume to be produced on the artist's oeuvre, reproducing in full colour over 300 of his most important works. Extended captions have been contributed by a range of distinguished artists, art critics and art historians - those who knew Moore or have previously written about him. Their detailed analysis of so many of Moore's sculptures and drawings adds significantly to the understanding of his work.

David Mitchinson's introductory essay traces the formation of the Henry Moore Foundation's Collection, a fascinating story told here for the first time. He explains the history of the Foundation since its formation in 1977, Moore's somewhat haphazard way of working, the confused ownership between the Foundation and its trading company, the strengths and weaknesses of the Collection itself, and the evolution of the Foundation's property at Perry Green.

Celebrating Moore makes an essential contribution to the study and appreciation of Moore's work.
