Moore's earlier reclining figures deal principally with mass, while his later ones contrast the solid elements of the sculpture with the space, not only round them but generally through them as he pierced the forms with openings. Earlier figures are pierced in a conventional manner, in which bent limbs separate from and rejoin the body. The later, more abstract figures are often penetrated by spaces directly through the body, by which means Moore explores and alternates concave and convex shapes.
These more extreme piercings developed in parallel with Barbara Hepworth 's sculptures.claudiacasa.net/components/map8.php

The plaster Reclining Figure: Festival in the Tate , is characteristic of Moore's later sculptures: an abstract female figure intercut with voids. As with much of the post-War work, there are several bronze casts of this sculpture. When Moore's niece asked why his sculptures had such simple titles, he replied,. Giving a sculpture or a drawing too explicit a title takes away part of that mystery so that the spectator moves on to the next object, making no effort to ponder the meaning of what he has just seen.
Everyone thinks that he or she looks but they don't really, you know. Moore's early work is focused on direct carving , in which the form of the sculpture evolves as the artist repeatedly whittles away at the block. In the s, Moore's transition into modernism paralleled that of Barbara Hepworth; the two exchanged new ideas with each other and several other artists then living in Hampstead. Moore made many preparatory sketches and drawings for each sculpture.
Most of these sketchbooks have survived and provide insight into Moore's development. He placed great importance on drawing; in old age, when he had arthritis, he continued to draw. After the Second World War, Moore's bronzes took on their larger scale, which was particularly suited for public art commissions. As a matter of practicality, he largely abandoned direct carving, and took on several assistants to help produce the larger forms based on maquettes.
By the end of the s, he produced sculptures increasingly by modelling, working out the shape in clay or plaster before casting the final work in bronze using the lost wax technique. These maquettes often began as small forms shaped by Moore's hands—a process which gives his work an organic feeling. They are from the body. At his home in Much Hadham, Moore built up a collection of natural objects; skulls, driftwood, pebbles, rocks and shells, which he would use to provide inspiration for organic forms. For his largest works, he usually produced a half-scale, working model before scaling up for the final moulding and casting at a bronze foundry.
Moore often refined the final full plaster shape and added surface marks before casting. Moore produced at least three significant examples of architectural sculpture during his career.
In , despite his own self-described "extreme reservations", he accepted his first public commission for West Wind for the London Underground Building at 55 Broadway in London, joining the company of Jacob Epstein and Eric Gill. In , he completed a four-part concrete screen for the Time-Life Building in New Bond Street, London, and in Moore turned to his first and only work in carved brick, "Wall Relief" at the Bouwcentrum in Rotterdam. The brick relief was sculpted with 16, bricks by two Dutch bricklayers under Moore's supervision.
The aftermath of World War II , The Holocaust , and the age of the atomic bomb instilled in the sculpture of the mids a sense that art should return to its pre-cultural and pre-rational origins. In the literature of the day, writers such as Jean-Paul Sartre advocated a similar reductive philosophy. Most sculptors who emerged during the height of Moore's fame, and in the aftermath of his death, found themselves cast in his shadow. By the late s, Moore was a worldwide celebrity; he was the voice of British sculpture, and of British modernism in general. The next generation was constantly compared against him, and reacted by challenging his legacy, his "establishment" credentials and his position.
At the Venice Biennale , eight new British sculptors produced their Geometry of Fear works as a direct contrast to the ideals behind Moore's idea of Endurance, Continuity ;  his large bronze Double Standing Figure stood outside the British pavilion, and contrasted strongly with the rougher and more angular works inside. Yet Moore had a direct influence on several generations of sculptors of both British and international reputation.
Among the artists who have acknowledged Moore's importance to their work are Sir Anthony Caro ,  Phillip King  and Isaac Witkin ,  all three having been assistants to Moore. In , the council of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets announced its plans to sell another version of Draped Seated Woman —58 , a 1. Nicknamed Old Flo , it was installed on the Stifford council estate in but was vandalised and moved to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park in Tower Hamlets Council later had considered moving Draped Seated Woman to private land in Canary Wharf but instead chose to "explore options" for a sale.
The letter said that the sale "goes against the spirit of Henry Moore's original sale" of the work. Today, the Henry Moore Foundation manages the artist's former home at Perry Green in Hertfordshire as a visitor destination, with 70 acres of sculpture grounds as well as his restored house and studios. It also runs the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds which organises exhibitions and research activities in international sculpture. Popular interest in Moore's work was perceived by some to have declined for a while in the UK but has been revived in recent times by exhibitions including Henry Moore at Tate Britain in and Moore at Kew and Hatfield in and respectively.
The Foundation he endowed continues to play an essential role in promoting contemporary art in the United Kingdom and abroad through its grants and exhibitions programme. The world's largest collection of Moore's work is open to the public and is housed in the house and grounds of the acre estate, that was Moore's home for forty years, in Perry Green, Hertfordshire.
The site and the collection are now owned by the Henry Moore Foundation.

Coal Miners' Wives: Portraits of Endurance. She visited the old family home at Kilkea in — despite never having lived there herself — and then returned to Canada where her career as a portrait artist took off. Over the following years she received commissions to sketch employees of the Hudson Bay Company, the Canadian Pacific Railway and other companies.
Her work with the Hudson Bay Company brought her to the Arctic at a time when it required a long and arduous river journey. After spending time in Aklavik, on the Mackenzie river delta, she was involved in a war of words in the press with the bishop of the region regarding the funding of the school there.
She openly voiced concerns about Anglicisation of the native population, feeling that their lifestyle and beliefs were central to their survival in that harsh environment. She assisted Walter Gilbert in writing his memoirs of his time as an early pilot in the Far North, Arctic Pilot , and illustrated other books.
