 Outdoor works at Perry Green

There are 21 large sculptures on view within the picturesque grounds of Henry Moore's country estate at Perry Green, Hertfordshire. The house, studios and gardens can be visited by the public during the Summer season, which runs until 30th October 2016.

"Sculpture is an art of the open air. Daylight - sunlight - is necessary to it, and for me its best setting and compliment is nature. I would rather have a piece of my sculpture put in a landscape, almost any landscape, than in, or on, the most beautiful building I know."

- Henry Moore quoted in 'Sculpture and Drawings by Henry Moore', Tate Gallery, London 1951
