Henry Moore

Henry Moore (1898-1986) was a prominent British sculptor of the 20th century known for his monumental, abstract, and figural cast bronzes.  Born in Castleford, England, he studied at the Leeds College of Art in 1919. He explored the movement of Primitive Art and brought in the influence of non-Western art forms into the Modernist practice.  His cast bronzes suggest human and animal form through organic curves and rectilinear joints, and he also sculpted reclining figures and mothers with children. In 1946, he held a retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art in New York and won the International Sculpture Prize at the 1948 Venice Biennale.
