A beautifully illustrated handbook and concise inventory of the archive at the Henry Moore Institute. This book explores the different ways of reading an archive, and takes us on a journey through a sculptor's career from apprenticeship to monumental commissions.
Through studio photographs, letters, diaries, blueprints, contracts, receipts and sketchbooks, this book gives a taste of the business of sculpture, both behind the scenes and in the public arena, over the last two hundred years.
The Sculpture Business is arranged to lead the reader through the career of an imaginary sculptor, while at the same time suggesting ways of using the documents in the Henry Moore institute's Archive of Sculptors' Papers for private research, study or teaching.
