Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

These two very different volumes celebrate the centennial of the English sculptor Henry Moore (1898-1986). Hedgecoe, a longtime friend of the artist and a noted photographer, has produced a book of images with few words. First comes 50 pages of Moore's forms as seen in the landscape, forms that inspired him; then a generous selection of "major works" in excellent and evocative photographs; and lastly 780 thumbnail images of Moore's sculpture forms. Not a catalogue raisonne but an inventory of Moore's "amazing fund of ideas," this is clearly a very personal and satisfying book, but it is limited to visual appreciation. Celebrating Moore presents 278 items covering the full spectrum of Moore's career selected from among the 12,000 held by the Henry Moore Foundation. Catalog entries are preceded by a substantial and useful essay on the foundation's collection. Both volumes are celebrations, Hedgecoe's the more individual and attractive, although of less scholarly content and value. Given that Moore is very well published, libraries should prefer Celebrating Moore for its text and catalog entries.?Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Lib.

Format: Hardcover
This beautifully presented hardback book, contains refined images of sculptures in substancial materials that will last a life. I suggest everyone should purchase this book as a tribute to Henry's life and the skill he displayed.
