Arguably the most famous sculptor of the 20th century, Henry Moore (1898- 1986) is known around the world for his large scale, biomorphic bronze sculptures.

Moore continued the momentum established by the European modernists such as Picasso, Jean Arp, and Brancusi for a near dedication to abstraction in three dimensions. In Moore's work this included depictions of reclining figures or mothers and children. The scale and form of Moore’s sculptures also draw connections between human form and landscape.

Caviar20 has a particular interest in sculptors who included printmaking as part of their process (Jean Arp, Louise Nevelson, Kosso Eloul etc.)

Henry Moore is perhaps one of the leading 20th century sculptors/printmakers. During his lifetime he created over 700 etchings, lithographs etc. exploring all aspects of printmaking. The practice of printmaking was completely correspondent to his sculptures. He would explore the form or character in one medium and either later realize it in the other medium or vice versa. Moore described his education in printmaking as “intense, exhausting, but exciting and satisfying”.

To learn more about Henry Moore's prints we recommend this video tour of an exhibition of Henry Moore's prints that was organized by the British Council. 

“Eight Reclining Figures” is an excellent example of Moore’s attention to the human form. This study is given additional exuberance by Moore’s addition of subtle but expressive strokes of color.

Finally for fan/clients in Toronto, Henry Moore has a special relevancy and connection to the city. The Art Gallery of Ontario has the world's largest collection of Moore's work, including over 900 works, mostly donated by the artist in the early 1970's. Furthermore Toronto has two major public Moore sculptures "The Archer" (in front of City Hall) and "Large Two Forms" (recently relocated to Grange Park, behind the AGO).
