Henry Moore was born in England, the seventh of ten children, to a coal
miner who taught himself enough mathematics to enable him to become manager
of the mine in which he worked. Moore always liked the art lessons given
at school and he decided to become a sculptor when he was eleven years
old and heard in Sunday school a story about Michelangelo.
Moore himself says that he owes a great deal to an art teacher in elementary
school who encouraged him as much as she could.
