Like no other artist, Henry Moore (1898-1986) sought the challenge of the monumental and made the outdoors the playing field for his artistic creativity. In its handsome horizontal format, this volume puts Moore's large sculptures centre stage and visualises the British artist's sources of inspiration from the Renaissance to Modernism.

Central to Moore's art is the monumentalisation of natural forms and the integration of the figure into the landscape. Impressive installation views show his sculptures in dialogue with Richard Meier's museum architecture and, in doing so, reinterpret Moore's fundamental theme of the interplay between sculpture, architecture, and nature.

In addition to nature, the conception of man in the art of the Renaissance was an essential source of inspiration for the artist. Important impulses also came from immediate predecessors - above all Aristide Maillol and Auguste Rodin - as well as from his contemporary, Jean Arp, to whom drawing on nature was similarly paramount.
