An Interview With Sculptor Henry Moore — Past Daily Weekend Gallimaufry
. . . or click on the link here for Audio Player — Henry Moore — interviewed by David Carroll — circa 1972 — Gordon Skene Sound Collection.
Widely regarded as one of the most evocative and original modernist sculptors of the 20th Century, Henry Moore’s works are seen practically everywhere in the world. They are in countless public places and he was often referred to as The Voice of British Sculpture and Modernism in the 20th Century. His influence has been widely felt, and continues to be a guiding force in the area of modern sculpture, some 24 years after his death.
This rare interview, conducted by David Carroll, was done at the artists home just outside London around 1972 (no exact date, sorry). Moore discusses his work and the world around him as well as his views on the creative process.
At a little under an hour and 20 minutes, Moore covers a lot of ground and is essential for anyone studying the world of this unforgettable artist.
