Henry Moore research

Research on the life and work of Henry Moore is an integral and on-going part of work at the Henry Moore Foundation.

Staff at the Foundation continue to document and examine the working processes and artistic output of Henry Moore. The collections, studios and archive of Henry Moore, based in Hertfordshire, inform our extensive programme of exhibitions, events and publications. These include Foundation projects such as the forthcoming exhibition and book Becoming Henry Moore, alongside contributions to publications across the world. We also regularly collaborate on research projects such as that recently completed at Tate – Henry Moore: Sculptural Process and Public Identity.

Latest project

An exciting project currently underway will see the complete works of Henry Moore published on-line. Continuing investigation into the output of Moore has resulted in the discovery of several new, previously uncatalogued, drawings alongside other discoveries, which we look forward to sharing with you very soon.   

Aside from our own research, curatorial and archive staff at Henry Moore Studios & Gardens regularly assist external scholars with enquiries into the life and work of Moore. Upon request, we also undertake authentication research on works believed to be by the artist.
