A monumental vision : the sculpture of Henry Moore by John Hedgecoe ( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Using the photographer's personal reminiscences, quotes from Moore, and a masterful photographic essay, the first section of the book highlights some of the sources of Moore's particular vision - the landscape, the body, primitive art, architectural ruins, and much more. Here Hedgecoe evokes the roots of the artist's genius and, most particularly, his clear and unerring sense of the monumental. Included are photos of works in progress as well as portraits of Moore working intensely in his studio. The second part displays many of Moore's major works from throughout his career that are now regarded as classics. Interspersed among the photographs are pages from Moore's personal sketchbooks, revealing an intimate sense of the artist and his way of thinking. Then, for the first time ever in one volume, Hedgecoe presents a compendium of over 750 photographs of sculptural forms. Each photograph is accompanied by dates and dimensions. Organized chronologically, this section is an invaluable resource for students and teachers of art history and modern sculpture, and for the many admirers of Moore's creations
The drawings of Henry Moore by Andrew Causey ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents the early development of American artist Henry Moore (1898-1986) as an art student prodigy and continues on through his career, with a focus on his "Shelter Drawings," a series depicting Londoners who sought shelter in the Underground during the Blitz. The author also explores the influence of surrealism and its biomorphic shapes on Moore's work in the 1920s and 1930s. The author concentrates his focus on how Moore developed his ideas as a two-dimensional artist, even though a number of his great sculptures are illustrated here. This work demonstrates that Moore used drawing and painting as a way of exploring and clarifying his ideas, not as a preliminary to any specific sculpture -- he didn't make extensive pre-sculpture sketches, preferring to gain a general concept of where he was going and then make alterations during the slow course of the actual carving or modeling
