May 2010: Exhibiting Artists: Henry Moore

Henry Moore, OM, CH, FBA, was an English sculptor and artist. He was best known for his abstract monumental bronze sculptures which are located around the world as public works of art. His forms are usually abstractions of the human figure, typically depicting mother-and-child or reclining figures. Moore's works are usually suggestive of the female body, apart from a phase in the 1950s when he sculpted family groups. Moore was instrumental in introducing a particular form of modernism to the UK. His ability in later life to fulfil large-scale commissions made him exceptionally wealthy yet he lived frugally and most of the money he earned went towards endowing the Henry Moore Foundation, which continues to support education and promotion of the arts.
