Henry Moore's Garden

After his wife Irina met and married Moore she gave up her own artistic endeavours to support Moore and bring up their daughter. Instead, she found an outlet in gardening, and what a beautiful garden it was. Sadly they will not allow photographs of the house which has only been open for a few months, after extensive renovation. It really pained me not to take photographs there were hundreds of amazing viewpoints. Not least was his amazing collection of Pre-Colombian art which fuelled his love of form. The house was recreated exactly as it was before his death. It was very beautiful, there is an amazing book called Hoglands if you want to view some lifestyle envy.
