Buy etchings by Henry Moore

Born in Castleford, Yorkshire in 1898, Henry Moore was a british sculptor, painter, draughtsman and engraver. He is considered as one of the most famed sculptors of the 20th century. Trained at the Leeds School of Art, then at the Royal College of Art, where he teached sculpture since 1924, Moore realized his first works in 1920. His paintings and drawings are in favor of the starkness and intensity. He participated to Surrealism in 1936 which gave him the taste for unusual, arbitrary places with stylized shapes. Named " War Artist " in 1940, he realized 82 drawings of shelters, with 7 lithographs. He created a repertoire of non figurative shapes which are going to be exploited in his engravings from 1949. Settled in Perry Green, Much Hadham in 1940, the artist created The Henry Moore Foundation. He died in Much Hadham, Hertfordshire in 1986.
