Henry Moore Studios & Gardens launches a new guide on Bloomberg Connects
The home and studios of sculptor Henry Moore launches a new guide on Bloomberg Connects.
On 16 December 2022 Henry Moore Studios & Gardens joins more than 100 cultural institutions around the globe on the Bloomberg Connects app, launching a new digital guide featuring audio and video from the Henry Moore Archive to enrich both on-site and off-site visits.
Bloomberg Connects is the free arts and cultural app created by Bloomberg Philanthropies. The Bloomberg Connects app, available for download from Google Play or the App Store, makes Henry Moore Studios & Gardens accessible for virtual visits over the winter, while the site is closed, through photo, audio and video features offering insights into the sculptor’s artistic practices, the development of his famous sculptures and his life in the English hamlet of Perry Green.
The app includes a wealth of information, and new audio descriptions and rare unseen footage which will be added to for the reopening of Henry Moore Studios & Gardens on 5 April 2022 to enrich the on-site experience for visitors.
“I really hope that visitors will be inspired by the information they find on the Bloomberg Connects app. It will not only give them an introduction to Henry Moore and to his practice but, also, give them a richer experience when they visit our site from April 2023.”
Godfrey Worsdale OBE
Director of the Henry Moore Foundation

About Henry Moore Studios & Gardens
Henry Moore Studios & Gardens is the former home and work-place of sculptor Henry Moore (1898-1986). From 1940 until his death in 1986, Moore lived and worked in rural Hertfordshire where he acquired over 60 acres of land and set up various studios, creating the ideal environment in which he could make and display his work and cater to an international demand for exhibitions.
Now open to the public, Henry Moore Studios & Gardens offers a unique insight into the artist’s working practice and showcases a large selection of Moore’s renowned monumental sculptures in the landscape in which they were created.
We also present annually changing exhibitions, which further illuminate the life and work of the sculptor, and are home to the Henry Moore Archive, one of the largest single-artist archives in the world.
Our visitor season runs from 5 April to 29 October 2023
We are open Wednesday to Sunday and Bank Holidays, 11:00–17:00
About the Henry Moore Foundation
The Henry Moore Foundation was founded by the artist and his family in 1977 to encourage public appreciation of the visual arts.
Today we support innovative sculpture projects, devise an imaginative programme of exhibitions and research worldwide, and preserve the legacy of Moore himself: one of the great sculptors of the 20th century, who did so much to bring the art form to a wider audience.
We run two venues, in Leeds and Hertfordshire, showing a mix of Moore’s own work and other sculpture.
We also fund a variety of sculpture projects through our Henry Moore Grants and Research programmes and we have a world-class collection of artworks which regularly tour both nationally and internationally.
A registered charity, we award grants to arts organisations around the world, with a mission to bring great sculpture to as many people as possible.
