For more than half a century, Henry Moore has enjoyed a privileged place as a pioneer of modern British sculpture. His work is familiar in public spaces worldwide. Celebrated for reconfiguring sculptural form, and hailed as a potent avant-garde artist, Moore has become a quintessentially establishment figure. A vast literature presents a story of unfolding development from early innovation to international reputation. This collection of essays reconnects Moore both to his times and to the preoccupations of modern art-historical scholarship. Examining broad themes in Moore's work from the 1930s to the 1980s, the essays reposition canonical pieces, offering readings of the diverse historical, economic and cultural conditions in which Moore's sculpture was produced and understood.
