A "high value" Henry Moore sculpture has been stolen from a Scottish park, police said Sunday, the latest of several thefts of the British artist's work in recent years.
The 1950 bronze, entitled "Standing Figure", was one of four Moore works in the Glenkiln Sculpture Park near Dumfries in southwest Scotland, alongside others by Auguste Rodin and Jacob Epstein.
Moore, who died in 1986 aged 88, was widely regarded as Britain's best 20th-century sculptor. A string of his giant bronzes have been targeted by thieves -- possibly for scrap metal value.
