A monumental vision : the sculpture of Henry Moore by John Hedgecoe( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 580 libraries worldwide
Using the photographer's personal reminiscences, quotes from Moore, and a masterful photographic essay, the first section of the book highlights some of the sources of Moore's particular vision - the landscape, the body, primitive art, architectural ruins, and much more. Here Hedgecoe evokes the roots of the artist's genius and, most particularly, his clear and unerring sense of the monumental. Included are photos of works in progress as well as portraits of Moore working intensely in his studio. The second part displays many of Moore's major works from throughout his career that are now regarded as classics. Interspersed among the photographs are pages from Moore's personal sketchbooks, revealing an intimate sense of the artist and his way of thinking. Then, for the first time ever in one volume, Hedgecoe presents a compendium of over 750 photographs of sculptural forms. Each photograph is accompanied by dates and dimensions. Organized chronologically, this section is an invaluable resource for students and teachers of art history and modern sculpture, and for the many admirers of Moore's creations

Monografie over de Engelse beeldhouwer (1898-1986)
The drawings of Henry Moore by Andrew Causey( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 459 libraries worldwide
This volume presents the early development of English artist Henry Moore (1898-1986) as an art student prodigy and continues on through his career, with a focus on his "Shelter Drawings," a series depicting Londoners who sought shelter in the Underground during the Blitz. The author also explores the influence of surrealism and its biomorphic shapes on Moore's work in the 1920s and 1930s. The author concentrates his focus on how Moore developed his ideas as a two-dimensional artist, even though a number of his great sculptures are illustrated here. This work demonstrates that Moore used drawing and painting as a way of exploring and clarifying his ideas, not as a preliminary to any specific sculpture -- he didn't make extensive pre-sculpture sketches, preferring to gain a general concept of where he was going and then make alterations during the slow course of the actual carving or modeling
Henry Moore by David Mitchinson( Book )
14 editions published in 1992 in 3 languages and held by 431 libraries worldwide
This book presents the major sculptures of Henry Moore over sixty years of his highly productive life as an artist. The works chosen range from intimate figures less than 20 centimetres high to monumental pieces six metres long, from those hand-carved in stone or wood to those modeled and then cast in bronze and lead. They thus represent the whole spectrum of the work of this great sculptor, tracing his development of ideas - most notably through the themes of the

London's war : the shelter drawings of Henry Moore by Julian Andrews( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 294 libraries worldwide
"Early in the Second World War, Henry Moore had to give up working on sculpture when his Hampstead studio was bombed. Instead he concentrated on drawing, creating a monumental series of works showing the plight of people sheltering in the London Underground." "This is the first book to consider Moore's visual documentation of the shelters within the context of the events of the London Blitz of 1940-41. Julian Andrews looks at Moore's personal and political feelings about the coming war and his doubts about working as an Official War Artist, comparing Moore's wartime drawings to works by other artists and to documentary photographs. In addition, the author considers the influence of the Shelter Drawings on people's feelings about the Blitz and their effect on public attitudes towards Moore's work."--BOOK JACKET
