'All art should have a certain mystery and should make demands on the spectator. Giving a sculpture or a drawing too explicit a title takes away part of that mystery so that the spectator moves on to the next object, making no effort to ponder the meaning of what he has just seen. Everyone thinks that he or she looks but they don't really, you know' (Elizabeth Day, 'The Moore Legacy,' The Observer, {2008-07-27), interview with Mary Moore, the artist's niece).
