About this product
- DescriptionHenry Moore's rise from Yorkshire miner's son to international acclaim as the twentieth century's greatest sculptor is one of the most remarkable stories in British art. In this revised, updated, expanded and redesigned new edition of The Life of Henry Moore, Roger Berthoud charts Moore's transition from controversial young modernist to pillar of the art-world establishment, garlanded with domestic and foreign hours. His account is enriched by the weekly interviews he did with Moore -- and his wife Irina -- before the sculptor's death in 1986, aged eighty-eight. At home and abroad Moore's sculptures aroused strong passions and were often the object of abuse, sharp criticism and even physical assault, as well as of admiration. He was attacked by younger artists, among others, who saw his growing fame as an obstacle to their advancement. He was to survive the ebb and flow in his reputation, and emerge with the status of a contemporary old master. From a mass of material, including recently discovered early letters, and interviews with Moore's friends, his former assistants and students, dealers, collectors, museum officials and leading architects with whom he worked, Roger Berthoud has built up a lively and engaging though t uncritical picture of Moore's long life and career in this definitive biography.
- Author BiographyRoger Berthoud was born in 1934 and educated at Rugby and Cambridge. He became a journalist after a brief spell in the City, joining the Evening Standard in 1960. There he specialized in the art world, interviewing many painters and covering the major auctions at Sotheby's and Christie's. Having edited the Londoner's Diary for two years, he joined The Times in 1967 as founding editor of a Times Diary strongly orientated towards the arts. Two years later he became correspondent first in Bonn and then in Brussels, returning to London in 1975 as a feature writer and interviewer. He left The Times in 1982 to become deputy editor of the Illustrated London News, ending his journalistic career as chief leader writer for the Independent. Among other works, he has written the definitive biography of Graham Sutherland (1982).
