Ode to Moore
Wilbert, Nancy Corrigan
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v110 n6 p38 Feb 2011
Best known for his monumental abstract sculptures of reclining figures, Henry Moore's forms are generally pierced or have a hollow space within them. Some say that these "organic undulating forms" are reminiscent of the landscape of his home in Yorkshire, England. Moore was a giant in the world of sculpture and his large cast bronzes and marble carvings offer a great source for inspiration as well. In this article, the author describes how students created sculptures in the style of Moore.
