schema:reviewBody""Hoglands was home to Henry Moore and his wife Irina for almost fifty years. This book traces the development of the house, Moore's studio, Irina's garden and their art collection from the early 1940s to the late 1980s, placing the social history of the building within the broader context of Moore's life and work. The book combines architecture, period interior design, and working practices with illustrations of the Moores' diverse personal art collection, their guests and their domestic routine. Many photographs are previously unpublished. Individual chapters focus on key themes central to each decade of the Moores' life at Hoglands: why they acquired the house; raising their daughter; Moore's reception of international architects, curators and dealers; the Moores as collectors; the family archive; and the recent restoration of the building. These are interspersed by sections reproducing archival photographs of Hoglands at different periods alongside quotations from those who visited or worked with the Moores at home." "The book should appeal to all those with an interest in Moore's career who are curious to know more about the way he lived."--BOOK JACKET."
