About the Author

Henry Moore (1898-1986) was perhaps the foremost sculptor of the 20th century. The late Lord Clark of Saltwood was famous for his work as a historian and populariser of the arts, especially as the presenter and writer of the TV series Civilisation (1969) and as director of the National Gallery.

Format: Hardcover
This book is one of the most helpful sources to understanding and looking at Henry Moore's world, work and learning his regard for the objects of reality he transformed into his sculptures. It is truly amazing and it is the actual sketchbook of his very own sheep. It is a wonderful book.

Format: Paperback
This facsimile of one of Moore's sketchbooks offers the lover of sheep (and those who are interested in a fuller understanding of Moore's art) a great window of what he saw from his window. For a brief period that sheep were Moore's willing models, he captured them looking at him, looking away from him, and, in general, just being sheep.

This is exactly what it says it is a "sketchbook." Sheep sketched in different poses, nothing fancy. If you want to learn to sketch sheep this book can give you a good start. If your looking for beautiful photos of sheep get the book called "Beautiful Sheep." You will see some beautifully photographed pages of sheep in all their glory.

I don't think of Henry Moore as a pastoral artist, or even an artist in 2 dimensions. But this reproduction of his sketches at a sheep farm is instructive. About sheep. About Drawing. About showing volume on the flat page. A lovely gift for any fiber fan.

I've always been a fan of Henry Moore's sculptures, but I absolutely love his sheep drawings. The pages have been copied impeccably, capturing even the stray marks of his sketchbook.
