What We Do
What We Do
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.
Our spaces in Leeds and Hertfordshire show a mix of Moore’s own work and showcase other groundbreaking sculpture.
Grants & fellowships
Henry Moore Grants support the growth and development of sculpture across historical, modern and contemporary registers, and funds research that expands the appreciation of sculpture.
We welcome applications for support of exhibitions, exhibition catalogues, commissions, conferences, research, publications and the development of collections through acquisitions, conservation, cataloguing and display.
Cataloguing Henry Moore’s work
When Henry Moore set up the Foundation he charged it with looking after his legacy, and caring for the tangible material of works and papers.
To do this, the Foundation continues the catalogue of his work that he began in his lifetime, and maintains it with records of newly-discovered works.
We have a comprehensive record of the artist’s life and work comprising photographs, negatives, transparencies, glass negatives and digital images available for research or to purchase.
Artwork research and review service
Our expertise in the work of Henry Moore and archive of unpublished resources places us in a unique position to assess artworks through visual analysis and in-depth research.
