Henry Spencer Moore was born on July 30, 1898, in Castleford, Yorkshire the seventh of eight children.  Despite an early desire to become a sculptor, having learned of the achievements of Michelangelo at the age of eleven, Moore began his career as a teacher in Castleford.  After military service in World War I he attended Leeds School of Art on an ex-serviceman's grant.  In 1921 he won a Royal Exhibition Scholarship to study sculpture at the Royal Academy of Art in London.
