Henry Moore's long journey from a nineteenth-century coal mining town in the north of England to the center stage of the twentieth-century art world was driven by talent, vision, and ambition. He fused ideas from non-European cultures, surrealism, and nature into a unique sculptural language that made its way into galleries and private collections around the world. As they grew larger, Moore's works also entered public spaces--Lincoln Center in New York, City Hall in Dallas, and the Houses of Parliament in London. Along the way, Henry Moore's status changed--from radical outsider to internationally renowned artist.
A Life in Sculpture traces Moore's journedy through interviews with critics and curators, as well as with his former assistant the sculptor Sir Anthony Caro, and American artist Bruce Nauman. The documentary also includes moving footage of sculptures, drawings, and archival photographs, in addition to film footage of Henry Moore at work.
"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
