Born today--Henry Moore (1898 - 1986), iconic British sculptor / painter known for his bronze semi-abstract monumental sculptures. Less known, he was regarded by some (from the Feb. 18, 2010 Telegraph article) to be a "contentious, avant-garde figure, preoccupied with sex and death,,,and virtually a Communist." Hmmn. In his own words, "The secret to lifeis to have a task, something you devote your entire life to, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for the rest of your life. And the most important thing is, it must be something you cannot possibly do." Happy birthday Henry Moore--
