Moore, Henry Spencer

(7/30/1898 Castelford- 8/31/1986 Perry Green) (England)
   Sculptor, watercolorist, lithographer, and draftsman. Perhaps the most important British sculptor of the 20th century. Studied at the Leeds School of Art and the Royal College of Art. While his sculptures were not overtly sexual, some works have a suggestive sensual quality.
