What We Do

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.

Catalogue raisonné

We are currently undertaking a long-term project to re-publish Henry Moore’s entire output in one comprehensive, illustrated online catalogue raisonné.

Expanding on previous printed catalogues of Moore’s sculpture, drawings and graphic work, the online catalogue raisonné features previously unpublished works, tapestries and textiles. It will also connect works of art to their bibliographic and exhibition histories.

Search the catalogue to access more information on specific works, or explore the artwork categories below.
