Henry Moore (1898-1986), Sculptor

Sitter in 93 portraits
Artist of 1 portrait
Moore is one of the most important sculptors of the twentieth century, whose works feature in more public places around the world than any other sculptor in history. Born in Yorkshire, the son of a coal miner, Moore studied at Leeds School of Art and the Royal College of Art (1921-4) where he later taught. Influenced by non-Western art and the work of Alberto Giacommetti, Hans Arp and Pablo Picasso, he is best known for his sculptures in marble, wood and bronze that explore the human form. He also made significant drawings in the 1940s of coal miners and also people sheltering from the London blitz in underground stations. The Henry Moore Centre for the study of sculpture is based in Leeds.
