Description - Celebrating Moore by David Mitchinson

Celebrating Moore is the biggest and most comprehensive single volume to be produced on the artist's oeuvre, reproducing in colour over 200 of Henry Moore's most important sculptural works. Originally published to celebrate the centenary of Moore's birth in 1998, it is now available in paperback. David Mitchinson's introductory essay traces the formation of the Henry Moore Foundation's Collection, the most important and comprehensive single group of Moore's work in all media - drawings, graphics and sculpture. He explains the history of the Foundation since its formation in 1977, Moore's somewhat haphazard way of working, the confused ownership between the Foundation and its trading company, the strengths and weaknesses of the collection itself, and the evolution of the Foundation's property at Perry Green. The core of the book consists of a selection of 278 works from the Foundation's Collection, illustrated in colour and with full catalogue information. Extended captions have been contributed by a range of distinguished artists, art critics and art historians - those who knew Moore or have previously written about him.Their detailed analysis of so many of Moore's sculptures and drawings adds significantly to the understanding of his work. Celebrating Moore makes an essential contribution to the study and appreciation of Moore's work - for scholars, art professionals and enthusiasts alike.
