Henry Moore : A European ImpulseRegular price $50.00
'The visual interplay of the works illustrated, together with the remarks about them, makes a powerful argument for the prevalence of organic abstraction, primitivism, and the vestigial remains of the figurative tradition in modern European sculpture. . . . Highly recommended.' - Choice
A handsome book exploring the work and influence of the British sculptor, Henry Moore
Henry Moore (1898-1986), known as the 'Picasso of Sculpture', is regarded as one of the most important sculptors of the twentieth century. Moore addressed the relationship between humans and nature in a radical manner, choosing the human figure as his central motif.
This beautiful catalogue accompanies one of the most extensive exhibition of works by the artist in Europe for almost 20 years and focuses on the question of why Moore inspired such a great number of artists both internationally and in Germany, including Hans Uhlmann and Bernhard Heiliger, Joseph Beuys and Barbara Hepworth.
Through one hundred and fifty colour plates, this book illustrates the innovation of Moore’s work, which led to his rise as a dominant figure in modern sculpture, and demonstrates his collaborative influence on other generations of artists.
