Henry Moore and the Arts Council Collection by Benedict Read( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautiful, small-format book not only presents a number of key works by this major sculptor, but also examines his early relationship with the Arts Council Collection, as advisor to its acquisitions committee during the early 1950s. Henry Moore was a major force in shaping the sculpture collection of the ACC, advocating the acquisition of a significant group of post-war British sculpture by artists including Kenneth Armitage, Lynn Chadwick and Barbara Hepworth. Moore himself is strongly represented in the Collection - art historian Kenneth Clark, a critical figure in the history of the ACC, encouraged Moore to donate his early works - and 11 powerful sculptures, as well as 15 works on paper spanning five decades, appear in the Collection's holdings. These works are illustrated in colour in this beautifully-designed book, accompanied by an essay and critical commentary on individual works by Benedict Read. They provide a succinct history of Henry Moore's practice between 1929 and 1962, with key developments in both two- and three-dimensional works
