Transcript of HENRY MOORE
Born in Castle ford, Yorkshire, UK on July 30Th 1898.
Now I really make the little idea from clay, and I hold it in my hand. I can turn it, look at it from underneath, see it from one view, hold it against the sky, imagine it any size I like it, and really be in control, almost like God creating something. -Henry Moore
Henry Moore's Father was a coal miner who strived to support his 8 children, Henry the 7Th of 8. Henry's father would not allow his children to work in the coal mines, he worked very hard to give his children the opportunity of education.

Characteristics of Modernism:
1.Experimental use of abstraction;
Fragmentation- process of breaking into smaller/separate pieces
Bio morphism- sculpture design suggesting the shape of a living organism.
2.New materials and new techniques.
3. Self belief that art had a purpose, real value.
My Favorite Sculpture
The reason "King and Queen" is my favorite sculpture of Henry Moore's is because it's the only sculpture I feel emotion from. The other sculptures have various random thoughts, and pieces scattered everywhere while "King and Queen" has a story to tell. I perceived this sculpture to be a man and his wife who have this endless love for each other and enjoy every little moment together. I feel Henry wanted a similar feeling as the couple experienced, as do most people. We want to feel adored, loved, cherrished.
-Henry decided he was going to be a sculptor at the young age of 11.
-Henry fought in World War 1 and survived with minor injuries, he was also a war artist in World War 2
-Almost every sculpture Henry created was made up of Bronze.
-Most of Henry's money was left to a foundation he created called "The Henry Moore Foundation" in hopes of promoting fine art.
