Item description for Henry Moore: 1898-1986 (Basic Art) by Jeremy Lewison...
The sensual, voluptuous shapes in the work of British sculptor Henry Moore (1989-1986) are the sign of his unmistakable signature style. Often depicting human or human-like forms--especially female--Moore's sculptures, with their abstract style, brought a distinctive brand of Modernism to fine art. His cast bronze and carved marble sculptures grace the gardens and galleries of the world's finest museums and have earned him a devoted following. Particularly beloved are his many mother-and-child compositions.
