Moore's sculptures are presentedalongside a generous selection of his drawings and carvings made during the last decades of his life. Commentary by leading scholars from the Henry Moore Foundation offers Moore's audience a deeper understanding of the artist's approach to his work and the evolution of his worldview.

This book is a celebration of The Henry Moore Foundation's collection--the most important and comprehensive single group of Moore's drawings, graphics, and sculpture. More than 300 of Moore's acclaimed works are reproduced in full color, and extensive captions are provided by distinguished sculptors, art critics, and art historians, many of whom knew and worked with Moore. Their fresh insights and personal anecdotes provide a detailed and compelling analysis of Moore's artistry. David Mitchinson's introductory essay traces the formation of The Henry Moore Foundation's collection, a fascinating story that has never been told before. He explains Moore's somewhat haphazard way of working, the confused ownership between the Foundation and its trading company, the strengths and weaknesses of the Collection itself, and the evolution of the Foundation's property at Perry Green in Hertfordshire. With a foreword by Sir Alan Bowness, Celebrating Moore will be a welcome addition to the study and appreciation of Henry Moore for years to come. From the Foreword:"Henry Moore talked well and liked talking about sculpture, but he rarely gave any verbal explanation of his own works. That was for others to do: He was the man who had made the piece and put it out in the world. This is the form that the catalogue takes--twenty-five sculptors, art historians, critics, curators, and film makers write about sculptures and drawings that particularly interest them."

The late twentieth century has been marked by momentous political, economic, and social change throughout the Chinese world. Deeply rooted cultural assumptions and ancient visual traditions have been challenged by rapid modernization and conflicting global, ethnic, and local identities. Inside/Out: New Chinese Art was the first major international exhibition to explore the impact of these challenges on artists in the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and those of the 1980s Diaspora. The multifaceted exhibition and accompanying catalog encompass an extensive range of artistic forms, including installation, video, and performance art as well as more traditional media such as oils and ink. The art is grouped according to themes, some specific to regions and others that reflect widespread and overlapping trends. With the inclusion of ambiguous territories like Hong Kong and Taiwan, the exhibition opens up a perspective of modern Chinese art from the "outside" as well as a looking-out from the "inside." The catalog features essays by eminent Chinese art scholars and curators along with leading curators and historians of Western art. Together they promote Chinese art's rightful place in the contemporary global cultural arena and at the same time acknowledge the influence of its rich heritage. The diversity and freshness of the exhibition reflects the explosion of creativity among Chinese artists during the past decade. The ironic social commentary of Li Shan's The Rouge Series, no. 24, the "apartment art" of artists reacting against the traditional patronage of large museums and corporations, and Wang Jin's sly humor in portraying consumer fetishes in today's China are a few examples of the spirited artistry awaiting the viewers of Inside/Out.

Volume 3 of the six-volume catalogue of Henry Moore's drawings deals with the years of the Second World War, the only period of Moore's working life when he was not actively involved in making sculpture. This decade includes the birth of Moore's daughter Mary in 1946, his one-man exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York in the same year, and his long association with Curt Valentin and the Buchholz Gallery, New York. Moore was appointed an Official War Artist in 1940 and his drawings of figures in the London Underground shelters during the Blitz brought his work before the general public for the first time. At the end of 1941 he visited Wheldale Colliery in Yorkshire, where his father had been a miner thirty years earlier, to record miners working at the coalface. After these commissions, other drawings such as mother and child studies and family groups were made for sculpture projects, while the birth of his daughter led to an outpouring of drawings of his wife Irina and of Mary. In addition to sculptural themes, Moore experimented with textile designs, and in response to literary commissions he illustrated Edward Sackville-West's The Rescue, 1946, and André Gide's Prométhée, 1949. This was a rich period for Moore's drawings in both technique and subject-matter, introducing new ideas that were later to find expression in sculptural form and to bring him worldwide recognition.

This is the first monograph exploring how, throughout its history, sculpture has provided a model to conceptualize photography as an art of mechanical reproduction. While there is a growing body of work examining how photography has contributed to the development of a Western 'sculptural imagination' by disseminating works, facilitating the investigation of the medium, or changing sculptural aesthetics, this study focuses on how sculpture has provided not only beautiful and convenient subject matter for photographs, or commercial and cultural opportunities for photographers in the market for art reproductions, but also an exemplar for thinking about photography as a medium based on mechanical means of production. In both media, processes from conception to realization involve apparatus that bypass the 'touch of the artist' - so important to enduring notions of the value of works of art. The book closely analyses a number of case studies, from 1847 to the present, selected both to explicate the conceptual and technological continuities between the two media, and also because of how they illuminate the materiality of photographic objects. The final chapter considers the convergence of the two media in contemporary sculptural practices that use forms of 3D photography and computer-operated sculpting machines. Rooted in an understanding of the practical, social and aesthetic implications of photographic as well as sculptural technologies, this volume demonstrates how photographs of sculpture are particularly useful in revealing how photography's changing materialities shape the meaning of images as they are made, circulated, looked at, written about and handled at different historical moments.

A comprehensive survey of the image of the human body in 20th-century art, featuring drawings, gouaches, pastels, and watercolors by 200 artists. In the course of the 20th century, the body has become the focus of the conflict between norms and deviation, order and excess -- the symbol of a constantly changing concept of human beauty. Covering a broad segment of the history of art in our century, Ideal and Reality focuses on the tradition of figural representation and the artist's approach to the image of the nude human body. The selection provides not only a survey of the various approaches to the representation of the body in drawing, but also documents the erotic fascination with which artists have viewed the body. This fascination is evident in the early years of the century in powerful works by Klimt, Schiele, Rodin, and Matisse, in which the drawing came to represent the immediate expression of erotic desire. The successive phases of the modern era -- from Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Expressionism, Neoclassicism, and New Objectivity to the figural work of artists on the fringe of the contemporary art scene -- reflect the stages in the evolutionary process that has changed the artists image of the body over the past 100 years.

This volume presents the early development of English artist Henry Moore (1898-1986) as an art student prodigy and continues on through his career, with a focus on his "Shelter Drawings," a series depicting Londoners who sought shelter in the Underground during the Blitz. The author also explores the influence of surrealism and its biomorphic shapes on Moore's work in the 1920s and 1930s. The author concentrates his focus on how Moore developed his ideas as a two-dimensional artist, even though a number of his great sculptures are illustrated here. This work demonstrates that Moore used drawing and painting as a way of exploring and clarifying his ideas, not as a preliminary to any specific sculpture -- he didn't make extensive pre-sculpture sketches, preferring to gain a general concept of where he was going and then make alterations during the slow course of the actual carving or modeling.
