The Garden Guide

Henry Moore Foundation

Visitors to Perry Green, where Henry Moore lived for much of his life, will gain an insight into the working practices and prodigious output of the artist. Tours of the site include the opportunity to see Moore's most impressive sculptures in their natural environment, while displays in the sculpture studios trace the artistic process from the numerous found objects from which Moore took inspiration, to the enlarging, casting and carving of his works. There is also an opportunity to see Hoglands the house where Henry and Irina Moore lived as well as an annually changing exhibition which explores different aspects of Moore's oeuvre. Yvonne Innes was commissioned to restore the Hoglands garden (2006). She worked closely with the staff and used both the photographic archive and Stephen Spenders book "In Irina's Garden" to restore the garden to its condition at aound end of the 60s/beginning of the 70s.
