Henry Moore's Sheep Sketchbook
Regular price £12.95
'A cult object, revered by lovers of sculpture, drawing - and sheep' - The Art Book
A charming collection of sheep sketches by the artist and sculptor, Henry Moore
In 1972, when the packing and crating for a major exhibition made it impossible for him to work in his sculpture studios, Henry Moore retreated to a small studio that looks out on a sheep meadow. Over the course of several months, as sheep were suckled and sheared, Moore produced a collection of delicate sheep sketches made from swirling and zigzagging lines in biro. Accurately reproducing the pages of Moore's 1972 sketchbook, this gem of a book gives a glimpse into the private inspirations of one of the giants of 20th-century British art.
A great resource for artists and art students and a thoroughly charming addition to your art library.
