Henry Moore (1898-1986) was a British sculptor known for his groundbreaking contributions to modern sculpture. His work is characterized by abstract forms inspired by natural shapes and organic forms. Moore’s sculptures often explore themes of humanity, nature, and the relationship between space and form. Moore’s early sculptures were influenced by primitive art, particularly the sculptures of ancient cultures such as the Aztecs and Mayans.  One of Moore’s most famous series of sculptures is his “Reclining Figures,” which depicts human figures in relaxed, reclining poses. These sculptures are often abstracted to the point of near-abstraction, with simplified forms that suggest the human body rather than directly representing it. Moore’s sculptures are known for their smooth, flowing lines and their sense of mass and volume.
