Henry Moore: Complete Drawings Volume 2

Volume 2 deals with a crucial decade in Moore’s career. Now enjoying a steady income form his post as sculptor and tutor at the Royal College of Art, he was able to devote more time to working on his own sculpture and drawings. It was this time that Moore began his series of ‘Transformation Drawings’. ‘Objets trouves’ picked up on the beach – lobster claws, animal bones or worn pebbles – became in Moore’s imagination reclining figures or mothers holding children. Some of these sketches were developed into the large sculptures of reclining figures with holes at their centre for which Moore is so well known.
