Henry Moore is one of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century. From 1950 until his death in 1986 Moore lived and worked in the small hamlet of Perry Green, Hertfordshire, where he acquired over 70 acres of land and set up various studios, creating the perfect place to make and show his art in nature. Although Moore’s work travelled across the globe, he understood that it was at Perry Green where the most profound understanding of his work could be gained. With glorious images of Moore’s work, home and studios, this publication provides a fascinating insight into the artist’s life, working methods, the main themes in his sculpture and the vital importance of the surrounding landscape.
