This classic text by Sir Herbert Read was first published in 1965 and, until this printing, has been unavailable for decades. Sir Herbert had written the first book on Henry Moore in 1934 and, in close collaboration with the sculptor himself, he was able to trace in this volume Moore’s emergence as one of the greatest artists of modern times. The book is now republished without revision as a key document for our understanding and enjoyment of Henry Moore’s creative achievement.
Sir Herbert Read became Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Edinburgh in 1931. He was Clark Lecturer, Trinity College, Cambridge, 1929–30, and Norton Professor of Fine Art, Harvard University, 1953–54. His publications include Modern Sculpture: A Concise History and A Concise History of Modern Painting, both published by Thames & Hudson in the World of Art series.
