Henry Moore is one of the key figures in modern sculpture. His work, both representational and abstract, is some of the most significant and well-known of the twentieth century and can be seen today in museums and public spaces around the world.
In this authoritative survey, Christa Lichtenstern establishes Moore’s place in twentieth-century art history, exploring the sculptor’s guiding principles and his artistic development, from his study of Greek antiquity and his fascination with early Italian sculpture to his interest in English heritage and culture. A leading scholar in modern sculpture, Lichtenstern provides a comprehensive and accessible study of this unique artist.
