About the Henry Moore Collection

The Henry Moore Foundation holds one of the largest and most comprehensive single-artist collections in the world.

First formed in 1977, when Moore donated the artwork still in his possession to the Foundation, the collection has grown over the years by further gifts and acquisitions.

Today our collection consists of around 15,000 works by Henry Moore, including sculpture, maquettes, drawings, prints, tapestries, textiles and studio materials.
