Henry Moore's reputation as one of the greatest sculptors of the 20th century is unassailable. But his words, both written and spoken, are often as thought-provoking, as moving, and as profound as his works. Few sculptors have spoken as eloquently as Moore has about their art; none with the same modesty, candour, and charm. What Moore has to say about his own sculptures, the work of other artists, his full and active life, and the craft of sculpture in general will prove to be of deep and enduring interest to all sculptors, artists, and those interested in modern art. This book collects the writings and sayings of Henry Moore, and supplements them with over 100 illustrations, many of them photographs taken by Moore himself, to both show his own sculpture and drawings as well as to relate them to work of artists of other periods. The text and illustrations together offer a portrait of the thoughts and talent of this seminal artist.
