Summary
"Henry Moore's writings constitute a vivid and comprehensive record of his life and work, of the influences that shaped his vision, and of his reactions to the work of other artists, periods and cultures. Spanning some seventy years, Moore's writings and conversations are much more than documentary records of his life and times: they have considerable literary merit in their own right." "This fascinating collection of Moore's written and spoken words is the most comprehensive to be compiled and contains much previously unpublished material. It includes over 150 illustrations: photographs of the sculptures, drawings and prints discussed in the text, illustrations of works by other artists, and photographs of the sculptor and his environment at various stages of his life." "Henry Moore Writings and Conversations completes and complements the catalogues of Moore's sculpture, drawings and prints. It will be indispensable for scholars and engrossing reading for Moore enthusiasts worldwide."--Jacket
