Part of the Taschen Basic Art Series series
The sensual, voluptuous shapes in the work of British sculptor Henry Moore (1989-1986) are the sign of his unmistakable signature style.
Often depicting human or human-like forms - especially female - Moore's sculptures, with their abstract style, brought a distinctive brand of Modernism to fine art.
His cast bronze and carved marble sculptures grace the gardens and galleries of the world's finest museums and have earned him a devoted following.
Particularly beloved are his many mother-and-child compositions.
Available in over 20 languages, "TASCHEN's Basic Art" series offers budget-minded readers quality books on the greatest artists of all time.
The neat, slick format and nice price tag make "Basic Art" books perfect for collecting.
Every book in the "Basic Art" series features: a detailed chronological summary of the artist's life and work, covering the cultural and historical importance of the artist; approximately 100 color illustrations with explanatory captions; and, a concise biography.
