Henry Moore’s rise from Yorkshire miner's son to international acclaim as the 20th century’s greatest sculptor is one of the most remarkable stories in British art. In this handsomely illustrated second edition of The Life of Henry Moore, Roger Berthoud charts Moore’s transition from controversial young modernist to celebrated pillar of the art world establishment. Drawing on his weekly interviews with the sculptor as well as a mass of material, including early letters and interviews with Moore’s friends and associates, Berthoud gives us a lively, balanced, definitive portrait of Henry Moore’s long life and career. Roger Berthoud, former arts journalist for the Times and the Independent, is also the author of the definitive biography of Graham Sutherland.
