Henry Moore’s market for top sculptural works has seen significant activity since 2016 when Reclining Figure: Festival (1951) set the world record price for a work at auction, selling for $32,766,700.
Although Henry Moore was a prolific artist in a variety of media, his sculptures are the most desirable and will likely continue to see a rise in value as the supply of important bronzes continues to decrease.
The graph by Art Market Research shows that since 1976, Henry Moore sculptures have increased at a 4.9% annual rate of return.
