Henry Moore: Ideas for Sculpture sheds new light on the work of Henry Moore (1898-1986), recording the much-admired contemporary architect Zaha Hadid's design of a display environment for the exhibition of Moore's sculptures and drawings. Hadid and Moore share a proclivity for fluid organic form, and for this project Hadid created curvaceous white linen walls and a giant horseshoe-shaped plinth. This volume collects the documentation of this adventurous installation, presenting reproductions of sculptures and sketches by Moore alongside Mary Moore's detailed account of their conception. It also includes an essay on the exhibition by writer and television presenter Matthew Collings, and a text by art historian Ann Wagner about Moore's works on paper, many of which were exhibited here for the first time. Ideas for Sculpture provides fresh perspective on the oeuvre of the late master, whose creative vision and presence in public life were key to the reception of modernity in England.
