    Abstract

    Book synopsis: This title was first published in 2003. 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 now become a quintessential establishment figure. This collection of essays is the first to reconnect 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 sculptures, offering readings of the diverse historical, economic and cultural conditions in which Moore's work was produced and understood.
