This beautiful, small-format book presents a number of key works by Henry Moore, showcasing prints and sculptures from the period 1929 to 1962, while expanding on previous publications through a study of Moore’s early relationship with the Arts Council Collection.

Henry Moore was a major force in shaping the sculpture holdings of the Arts Council Collection, acting as an advisor to the acquisitions committee between 1942 and 1960, advocating the acquisition of a significant group of post-war British sculpture by artists including Kenneth Armitage, Lynn Chadwick and Barbara Hepworth. Moore himself is strongly represented in the Collection. Eleven powerful sculptures, as well as thirteen works on paper spanning five decades are illustrated by new, full-colour photography in this beautifully-designed book, alongside historical material from both the Arts Council Collection and Henry Moore Foundation archives.

Featuring a critical essay by art historian Benedict Read, as well as a timeline of the artist’s life and involvement with the ACC, Henry Moore and the Arts Council Collection provides a succinct history of Moore’s early practice.
