This account of Henry Moore's work has been constructed from the notes and drafts of a book on the sculptor which Peter Fuller was preparing in the years before his death in 1990. Although Moore is one of the rare breed of British artists who became a household name, his fluctuating reputation has been difficult to assess. From Fuller's polemically humanist, atheist viewpoint, Moore is seen as an exemplary artist, one who imaginatively transformed his material to express profound truths about our troubled relationship with our maternal roots and with nature itself. Resisting the aggressive fashions of Modernism, he drew on the older English Romantic tradition to create an art which was resolutely secular, and yet a commanding spriritual affirmation.
