Henry Moore (British 1898-1986)

Moore is an internationally renowned sculptor in stone, wood and bronze, mainly of figure objects. His first one-man show was held in 1928 at the Warren Gallery, London, and in the same year he was commissioned for a relief on the London Underground Building, over St James's Park tube station.
During his career Moore was to participate in a number of forward-looking groups, such as 7 & 5 Society, Unit One and the International Surrealist Exhibition in London in 1936 and in Paris in 1938.
During World War II, as an official War Artist, his talent found new outlets in drawings of miners working and groups of Londoners sheltering in the underground, published in The Shelter Sketch-Books.
