Discover Henry Moore
Henry Moore (1898-1986) was a British sculptor and graphic artist known for his large sculptures in stone and bronze. He is one of the most important artists of the twentieth century, and his works are found around the world – both inside and outside museums, and in and outside cities. Moore engaged the abstract, the primitive, the surreal and the classical in forms which are accessible and familiar whilst they are avant-garde. His large-scale works are often overwhelming in their physicality which enabled him to create a heightened relation between the sculpture, the site and the viewer.
