Please note that the Archive will have limited opening times in July and August 2013.
The Henry Moore Institute houses and maintains the Leeds Museums & Galleries archive of sculptors' papers. Covering the eighteenth century to the present day it has a particular emphasis on the twentieth century and contains a diverse range of papers relating to British sculptural practice. There are particularly important collections of photographs and drawings.
The archive is closely related to the sculpture collection of Leeds Museums & Galleries and the Henry Moore Institute library. Together they provide an important research facility to enable a greater understanding of the history and practice of sculpture.
