Henry Spencer Moore, b. 30/6/1898, d. 31/8/1986

A coal miner's son from Yorkshire. His school teacher recognised his talent and encouraged him to apply for a scholarship to study sculpture at art college.
He was injured in first world war and on discharge from the army he was funded to study at Leeds Collage of Art where he met Barbara Hepworth. They both went on with a scholarship to study at the Royal College of Art in London where access to public and private collections increased his awareness of the art.
He adopted a modern approach of direct carving of the material and learned to bring out the natural qualities and imperfections in the material as well as the marks left by the tools used.
He travelled to Italy to see the works of Michelangelo and in Paris was impressed by a Maya sculpture of a reclining figure (Chac Mool). The reclining figure became Moore's hallmark.
Moore joined a group of avant-garde artists living in the Hampstead, London, where ideas flowed and exchanged along with the influence of many refugee artists and architects who passed through the community. Contact with Picasso and other European artists along with regular trips to Paris and a trip to Spain in 1934 helped to further his vision and he progressed from direct carving to bronze casting by first making clay or plaster models before scaling them up for casting.
His home was damaged by bombing in WWII and he moved to Hertfordshire where he spent the rest of his life.
After the war and the birth of his daughter he developed the "Family Group" theme and it became his first public commission. His work became increasingly popular from the 1950s and important public commissions such as the the reclining figure at the UNESCO building in Paris perpetuated his career.
In 1972 he set up the Henry Moore Foundation to protect his legacy. The foundation runs a gallery, sculpture park and studios as well as funding the art of sculpture through exhibitions and collections, providing scholarships and conferences.

What made Moore, Hepworth and their contemporaries unique was their exploration and development of the abstract form. Piercing of these forms allowed light to play a role as well as to draw the eye to new perspectives.
Moore regularly drew inspiration from small natural objects such as bones, shells, driftwood and pebbles.
The choice of simple names for his work allows the imagination to ponder the meaning of the piece as the viewer stands back and moves around the work letting the shifting perspective suggest by itself.
