Henry Spencer Moore was a twentieth-century English sculptor and artist. Henry Moore is known for his abstract sculptures installed in many parks in England and America. Moore's work brought him a huge income, allowing him to establish a charitable foundation for the protection of culture.
Henry Moore introduced an element of surprise to the development of English modernism. He acknowledged that his model was almost always the female body. The exception are the family groups created in the 1950s. Some critics argue that the slanted and semi-reclining figures evoke associations with the gentle hills of Yorkshire.
Henry Moore was a proponent of modernism in art. Over time, his statues became more and more abstract. In Moore's own opinion, after the horrors of war, art needed to be returned to a pre-cultural period.
A foundation named after him still exists, and his work is incredibly highly regarded. In 2012, Lying Figure: Festival, dedicated to the heroism of the British in the war, was sold for 19 million pounds.
