Henry Moor sculptures can be seen at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield.
Henry Moore was born in Castleford, 30th July 1898. He attended Castleford Grammar School on a scholarship and subsequently became a teacher there. His early sculptures of the1920s show the influences of Central American pre-Columbian art and the massive figures of the Italian Renaissance in the 1930s his works had become highly abstract, consisting of simplified, rounded pieces carved from wood, with numerous indentations and holes. His main themes include mother-and-child and family groups, fallen warriors, and, most characteristically, the reclining human figure. Although he endured much criticism of his early work, in 1948 he was awarded the International Prize for Sculpture and his reputation worldwide grew over the following years a version of his Reclining Figure Draped is on show outside of the Civic Centre at Castleford and his first Reclining Figure from 1936 at Wakefield Art Gallery.
He died in 1986.

Well captured images, but I don't find the sculptures appealing whatsoever! Carol

Great set of images, especially ones taken in the snow as they have a colour to them that stands out!
Are these the statures they are wanting to put indoors due to vandelism?
great shots!

Have never been a fan of his works, no matter how valuable, but do rather like V10 as they remind me a bit of large chess pieces. Your image and the entire set, are quite a work of art themselves, so thank you for sharing them. All are well thought out and beautifully captured.

Like others, I've never been a fan of his work, which I find rather odd, although I do quite like V6 and V7, but mostly because of the colour and texture and the way the light catches it. Great set of images, however, very well captured and presented.

#1 is quite superb — excellent composition and it's your own creative interpretation of a great piece of art.

A wonderful collection of images - how super to have the addition of snow too for some of them - so v14 and v15 are my favourites. Hoping very much to visit the sculpture Park in the summer
