Product Description:

With a simple text and photographs, this book invites young readers to explore one man's creative process.

From Kirkus Reviews:

``Published with the cooperation of the Henry Moore Foundation,'' a handsome book illustrated with some of Moore's preparatory sketches and photos of his own work plus many other excellent b&w photos: a brief, intelligent, and inviting introduction to a sculptor who has been called ``the most famous sculptor of the twentieth century.'' ``Most famous'' isn't equivalent to best, and Picasso, too, was a sculptor; still, Moore's reputation is as monumental as his splendid works of art. Gardner's succinct text captions photos of his studio, with the ordinary and extraordinary objects that--with his family-- inspired him, and shows how his pieces grew from small maquettes that he pondered while ``His eyes and fingers followed the curves over and around,'' living with them for months before he translated them into huge sculptures. A beautifully crafted book that conveys a great deal about all artists while giving the unique flavor of one. Biographical note; titles, dates, sizes, but (unfortunately) not the locations of the art. (Biography. 5- 10) -- Copyright 1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
