Henry Moore: Friendships and Legacies


Henry Moore is often lauded as one of the pre-eminent artists of the 20th century, who raised the status of British sculpture internationally. This book focuses on some of his friendships to illuminate the networks with which he was working and how the affected the legacy of the artist and his work. Moore’s relationship with the collectors Robert and Lisa Sainsbury offers an insight into 20th century collecting, elucidated here through the foundation of the Sainsbury Centre. Analysis of John Hedgecoe’s photographs of Moore illuminates how closely the sculptor controlled his image in photography, film and publications. The volume is richly illustrated with archive images and new photography.

The publication features a subtle matte metallic bronze print finish on the cover and selected inside spreads.

Written by Tania Moore with a contribution by Norman Foster, Lord Foster of Thames Bank and an foreword written by David Sainsbury, Baron Sainsbury of Turville.
