Henry Moore's Vision

Henry Moore's Vision

From a quaint hamlet in Hertfordshire, Henry Moore managed his global art presence. His bucolic home and studio, Perry Green, served not only as a refuge from the blitz in London but a profound source of inspiration.

Godfrey Worsdale guides us around this unique environment, today home of the Henry Moore Foundation, as he outlines the artist's early life, love of museums and fascination with nature. He shows the way Moore's influences span ancient and modern sources, his work rooted in the abstract and the real. Such was Moore's gift for translating these disparate ideas into sculpture, his works prompt us to re-examine the world around us. In this way, Moore 'shows us how to see'.
