Synopsis by Sally Barber
Henry Moore, an artist from the small coal mining town of Castleford, Yorkshire, is considered the most influential British sculptor of the 20th century. His large semi-abstract pieces feature graceful rounded forms and "mother and child" and "reclining figure" themes. Moore's interpretations of the human shape deeply impacted contemporary sculpture. He gained international recognition and his pleasing sculptures are found in galleries, museums, and collections around the globe. Henry Moore: The Sculptor features the artist himself. He explains, in his own words, his techniques, his passion for shape and form, and his creative philosophies. Along with providing a personal look into his artistic ideas, Moore discusses the work of other sculptors.
