Henry Moore Foundation at Perry Green

Tucked away in Hertfordshire's undulating countryside, Perry Green was English sculptor Henry Moore's home from 1940 until 1977. The gardens, barns and sheep fields contain numerous sculptures, drawings and lithographs, tapestries, working models and carvings made by the artist.

The Henry Moore Foundation was established "to advance the education of the public by the promotion of their appreciation of the fine arts and in particular the works of Henry Moore". Perry Green is a testament to this aim, offering an intimate and relaxed appreciation of Moore's enormous bronze sculptures as they lie resplendent and immense on the sculptor's former lawns.

There are two barns - the Aisled Barn with tapestries based on Moore's drawings - and the Sheep Field Barn, which houses changing exhibitions.

The neighbouring Bourne Maquette Studio houses a cornucopia of relics from Moore's life as an artist, including plasters, terracottas and "found objects" such as bones and flints from his wife's vegetable patch.
