- Serves as a guide to the house, studios and gardens at Perry Green and a fascinating introduction to Henry Moore's extraordinary range of work- Beautifully illustrated in full color throughoutHenry Moore is one of the most important and influential artists of the 20th century. His home, studios and garden at Perry Green in Hertfordshire provide an invaluable insight into his life and work. When Moore died in 1986 the studios and their contents were preserved so that visitors could experience them as they were in his lifetime - as if the artist has just stepped outside. Although no longer working spaces, the studios provide a glimpse into Moore's world and bring us as close as possible to his working methods. This guide to the house, studios and gardens at Perry Green provides a fascinating introduction to Moore's artistic practices and the extraordinary range of his work, from sculpture to textiles, prints and drawings to woodcarving and ceramics.
