Henry Moore was an English artist, who was born in 1898 and died in 1986.

From a working class family, Henry Moore was one of the first sculptors to bring a particular form of artistic modernism to British society at the start of the 20th century, for which he drew inspiration from primitive art.

Henry Moore was very successful from the 1930s onwards; he taught in several universities and his creations quickly went to the top of the art market. By the end of the 1940s, he was seen as the voice of British sculpture, having earned worldwide renown. However, while the artist's recognition and popularity increased, particularly in the way of commissions, he preferred to live simply after the end of World War II, and gave most of his earnings to the Henry Moore association to help support the education, promotion and distribution of art.

Henry Moore's sculptures are mainly inspired by the feminine body, and he gradually moved towards more abstract and elongated forms. His signature motif is a reclining form, and he worked mostly in monumental bronze. He created numerous works documenting the Blitz during the Second World War in London, which are preserved at the British Museum.
