THE Secretary of State for National Heritage, David Mellor, has been asked to spot-list the studios, gardens and sculptures in the hamlet of Perry Green, Hertfordshire, where Henry Moore lived and worked for almost 50 years. The Henry Moore Foundation has plans to add a study centre, a small visitors' centre and a sculpture gallery at Perry Green designed by the architects Jeremy Dixon and Edward Jones. The case for listing has been submitted by Stephen Levrant, an architect, and Jack Warshaw, a planner. Writing in this month's Art Review, Mr Levrant says: 'Perry Green should remain available as Moore created it.'
