Hoglands: the home of Henry and Irina Moore

Front Cover
Lund Humphries, 2007 - Architecture - 224 pages
Hoglands was home and workplace to Henry Moore for almost fifty years. This book traces the development of the house, Moore's studio, and his art collections from the early 1940s to the late 1980s, placing the history of the house within the broader context of Moore's life and work. The book combines architecture, period interior design, and Moore's day-to-day working practices with illustrations of his personal art collection. Many photographs are previously unpublished. Within chapters organised chronologically by decade there are spotlights on key themes: the Moores as collectors; Moore's reception of international architects, curators and donors at Hoglands; the history and restoration of the buildings. The book should appeal to all those with an interest in Moore's sculpture who are curious to know more about how he lived and worked.
