Henry Moore, English, 1898 - 1986
Moore's most prominent and recognisable themes include mother-and-child and family groups, fallen warriors, and the reclining human figure.
Moore's reputation in England and abroad steadily grew throughout his life and his work was in great demand, especially in the United States; he enjoyed countless commissions around the world, received many honours and had numerous exhibitions.
Throughout his career, Moore created works that combine poetic imagination and strength of form while remaining true to his genius for giving clear expression to personal metaphor.
