Thieves used a flatbed lorry to remove Reclining Figure
The largest exhibition of Henry Moore's works seen outside Europe has received a top award from the Sao Paulo Art Critics Association in Brazil.

The association named the exhibition of work by the Yorkshire artist, who died in 1986, the best international visual arts show of 2005.

It was produced by the British Council and the Henry Moore Foundation, with sponsorship from Brazilian companies.

Police are still searching for Moore's 3m Reclining Figure, stolen last week.

The 11ft bronze work which weighs more than two tons was taken from the Perry Green Estate in Much Hadham, Herts.

Henry Moore's winning exhibition, which was also sponsored by the Cultura Inglesa, was shown at the Pinacoteca in Sao Paulo before going on to Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia.
