about the book

Presenting rare and unseen works from the Henry Moore Family Collection, Hauser & Wirth's Old Bond Street gallery was transformed in 2008 by Zaha Hadid and Patrik Schumacher, whose bold organic creations - specifically commissioned for the exhibition - provided a sympathetic and novel context for re-approaching Moore's oeuvre.

The Artist

Henry Moore

The human figure, enigmatically isolated or in relationship with others, is both the stimulus and the crux of all Henry Moore’s works. For him, creating his sculptures was not so much an abstract exercise in looking at the human figure, but a personal investigation and violation of the artist’s own body: ‘When I carve into the chest,’ he commented, ‘I feel as if I were carving into my own.’ In 1943, Moore was commissioned to carve a Madonna and Child for the Church of St. Matthew, Northampton; this sculpture was the first in an important series of family-group sculptures.
