Oscar-winning film director Danny Boyle is leading a group of celebrities who've criticised the sale of a Henry Moore sculpture which is currently on loan to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park
London's Tower Hamlets Council is considering selling the bronze statue to boost its depleted coffers. The figure, called Draped Seated Woman, could fetch more than £20 million.
Castleford-born Moore sold the sculpture to Tower Hamlets in the 1960s for £6000 but after it was vandalised it was moved to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park 15 years ago.
A sculpture sold at cut-price to Tower Hamlets Council by the Castleford artist Henry Moore is to be sold - despite widespread opposition.
A campaign has been launched to keep a valuable Henry Moore statue in Yorkshire. It belongs to a council in London who want to sell it.
