Moore estate

Moore estate

Judges at the Court of Appeal reserved judgment on an attempt by the daughter of the sculptor Henry Moore to gain control over millions of pounds worth of copies of her father's works. Mary Moore, acting under her married name of Danowski, was appealing against a judgment in 1993 which gave control of her father's works to the Henry Moore Foundation. She claimed "artist's copies" of her father's works produced from 1977 were his personal property and so became part of his personal estate following his death in 1986.
