Henry Moore

English sculptor

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
Moore is considered to be one of the most important British sculptors of the 20th century. He drew his inspiration primarily from non-Western sculpture, and his subject matter was nearly always the human form. He also worked as a draftsman during the World War II, executing a series of "shelter drawings" which depicted Londoners seeking shelter in the London Underground.
