Henry Moore: Plasters
This is the first publication to look exclusively at Henry Moore's work in plaster. Until recently the plasters have been regarded as preparatory stages in the process of making a sculpture rather than as works of art in their own right. In fact, their scarred surfaces, on which each incised line is visible, convey a sense of immediacy and a complexity of texture that is absent from the highly finished sculptures in bronze and marble, lending them a disturbing intensity. Acutely aware of the psychological and aesthetic changes that occurred in his sculptures once he cast them from plaster to bronze, Moore made a number in plaster only. Anita Feldman, a leading authority on Henry Moore, reappraises the significance and value of these beguiling creations, while the sculptor Malcolm Woodward recalls his time assisting Moore in their production. Illustrated with plasters of all sizes and from three decades, and including commentaries by the artists Anthony Caro and Phillip King, this important book uncovers a little-known aspect of Moore's incomparable oeuvre.

Blitz and Blockade: Henry Moore at the Hermitage
Henry Moores evocative drawings from the so-called Shelter series sketches made in London's underground when it was used as a bomb shelter during the London Blitz of 1940-41 provide the heart of this book, with over 70 drawings and seven sculptures included. However, based on a firstever collaboration between the Henry Moore Foundation and the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, the book also reveals some remarkable parallels with Russia's wartime experience by including drawings sketched in the basements of the Hermitage during the Siege of Leningrad which started in September 1941 and lasted for 900 days, during which time almost a third of the population died from starvation. Sketched by a young architect, Mikhail Nikolsky, the Hermitage drawings provide a fascinating counterpoint to Moores shelter drawings, which are now regarded as a high point in the creative life of one of Britains most prolific and admired sculptors of the 20th century. Timed to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Siege in 2011, this book also includes documentary photographs of both the Blitz and the Siege of Leningrad.
