Henry Moore’s Sheep Sketchbook


Comments by Henry Moore and Kenneth Clarke

In 1972 Henry Moore retreated to a small studio in Hertfordshire that overlooked fields where the local farmer grazed sheep. The sheep came close to the window and fascinated Moore and so began to draw them. Initially seeing them as balls of wool his vision changed as he began to the sheep for what they were really like.

The original sketchbook was presented to his daughter Mary with this book originally being published under Moore’s guidance in 1980
