Henry Moore, best known for his carved marble and cast bronze abstractions of the human figure, was born in Castleford, West Yorkshire, England, and studied at the Leeds School of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. A profoundly humanist sculptor, Moore helped to sustain the human figure as a significant subject while working in an increasingly industrial and technological age.
