Standing Figures


Henry Moore

(British, 1898–1986)


The Mary Spedding Milliken Memorial Collection, Gift of William Mathewson Milliken 1956.664

Catalogue raisonné: Cramer 9



Since these are studies for sculpture, Moore wrote under the top row, "Figures for metal" and "Family Group" and below, "Terracotta or bronze."

"I find drawing a useful outlet for ideas which there is not time enough to realize in sculpture. And I used drawings as a method of study and observation of natural forms (drawing from life, drawings of bones, shells, etc.). And I sometimes draw just for its own enjoyment.
