The Value of Henry Moore

 

Moore Working

Henry Moore is one of the most iconographic artists of the 20th century. His works in sculpture, bronze, Rosenthal Porcelain, and on paper are well known for the fluidity of line work that is abstract and detailed. His works effortlessly draw out the viewer’s feelings of compassion, interest, and wonder and thus it is not difficult to see why his works have increased in value.

The 20th Century British and Irish Art sale at Bonham’s in November broke the world auction record for a work on paper by Moore. A 1941 drawing of a seated mother and child sold for $989,286. In addition, a 1939 bronze sculpture by Moore, Stringed Reclining Figure, was also sold at this auction for $441,544.

Stringed Reclining Figure, 1939

As discerned from Art Price, the turnover value for works by Moore in public auctions was over $33 million in 2010, with a 24% increase in value since 1998. The popularity of his mediums, such as bronze sculpture, Rosenthal Porcelain, and drawings vary depending on the iconography and price. However as the artist evaluation and recent auction listings indicate, the investment of owning a work by Moore
appears to be a wise decision.
