Moore at Kew marks an exhibition of 28 large sculptures placed throughout Kew's unique 300 acre World Heritage Site landscape, making this the first exhibition of its kind ever to be held in London. There have been previous exhibitions of Moore's work in the capital but never on such a scale and in such a magnificent public setting. Gorgeously illustrated, the book allows readers to engage with the sculptures and landscape on several levels. They will be drawn around the Gardens to enjoy the sculptures set against a variety of striking backdrops, from the formal gardens and great glasshouses to the spectacular arboretum. Essays and appendices authored by renowned experts from The Henry Moore Foundation provide a unique insight into the increasing popularity of outdoor sculpture displays, the installation of sculptures outdoors, Moore's life, his working methods and tools and material.
Contributors include Anita Feldman Bennet, Curator, and Suzanne Eustace, Assistant Curator from The Henry Moore Foundation. Foreword by Robert Calvocoressi, Director of the Henry Moore Foundation.
