Henry (1898) Moore Sold at Auction Prices

Sculptor, b. 1898 - d. 1986

(born 30 July 1898 Castleford, Yorkshire, England; died 31 August 1986 Much Hadham, Hertfordshire, England) British sculptor. As a prominent artist that produced truly unique sculpture, Henry Moore is considered one of the greatest sculptors of the twentieth century. Moore began working as a teacher, but after he went to fight in World War I he decided to go back to school and pursue his dream of becoming a sculptor; he attended the Leeds School of Art and later received a Royal Exhibition Scholarship to the Royal Academy of Art in London in 1921. In 1925 he traveled to Italy and France, where he was able to visit the works of the Old Masters. However instead of incorporating classicism into his work Moore rejected it; he preferred studying the ancient Egyptian, Mexican and African sculpture at the British Museum. He also preferred the avant-garde, modernist sculpture of such artists as Jean Arp. In 1925 he became an instructor of sculpture at the Royal Academy where he taught until 1932; afterwards teaching at the Chelsea School of Art from 1932-9. In 1928 Moore had his first solo show at the Warren Gallery in London. At first carving directly from wood and stone, Moore paid extra attention to the material he was working with; emphasizing the qualities of those materials and making it a key aspect of his work. Later in his career Moore produced works in bronze, which enabled him to make multiple copies. Moore’s portfolio varied from the concrete to the abstract, however his work is distinct since almost every piece can be linked to the human figure. Although never officially part of the movement, Moore became associated with Surrealism when he participated in the International Surrealist Exhibition at the New Burlington Galleries in London in 1936. During World War II Moore was assigned by the War Artists Advisory Committee to record life in underground bomb shelters, at which time Moore solely focused on drawing. During this time he had his first retrospective at Temple Newsam in Leeds, England, followed by his first major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1946. In 1948 Moore received the International Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale and the British Order of Merit in 1963. He has held numerous positions at various art institutions as well, including being a trustee at the Tate Gallery (1941-56), the National Gallery (1956-1986), a member of the Art Panel of the Arts Council (1945-51), and member of the Royal Fine Art Commission (1947-1986). Toward the end of his life Moore gave many of his sculptures to the Tate Gallery in London.

                        Henry Spencer Moore, English, 1898 to 1986, bronze sculpture, Reclining Figure. Circa: late 20th century. Originally was designed from 1969 to 1970. Signed, Moore, on a rectangular shaped base. Mounted on a rectangular shaped bronze stand. In 1924 Henry Moore began exploring the theme of the reclining figure, and he eventually began seeing parallels between the motif and the landscape. Moores use of deep hollows and slashed expressions suggests psychological tension within the subject, bringing his work into affinity with Surrealism.

                        Henry Spencer Moore, English, 1898 to 1986, bronze sculpture, Reclining Figure. Circa: late 20th century. Originally was designed from 1969 to 1970. Signed, Moore, on a rectangular shaped base. Mounted on a rectangular shaped bronze stand. In 1924 Henry Moore began exploring the theme of the reclining figure, and he eventually began seeing parallels between the motif and the landscape. Moores use of deep hollows and slashed expressions suggests psychological tension within the subject, bringing his work into affinity with Surrealism.

                        Henry Moore (1898-1986) Four Studies for Seated Mother and Child; Mother and Child verso Pen and ink, watercolour wash, wax crayon, circa 1947-49, signed in black ink lower right, on medium weight off-white wove paper, the full sheet 291 x 228mm (11 1/2 x 9in) We are grateful to the Henry Moore Foundation for their assistance with the cataloguing of this lot. This work will be included in the artist's forthcoming catalogue raisonne and is listed in the Henry Moore Foundation's archives under 2022.15. Lot Essay This captivating watercolour, ink, wash, and wax crayon drawing was created between 1947 and 1949. It depicts the affectionate gestures between mother and child explored from four different angles and poses, the child moving playfully while Moore captures each new perspective. On the reverse, a larger study of the pair is portrayed with a muted colour palette of pale green, yellow and translucent purple wash, the artist's attention here is on the core contours of the body and subtle light needed to create their silhouette. The war years were a time of change and upheaval for Moore who was already a celebrated sculptor by its outbreak. In 1940, after his Hampstead home and studio were bombed, he was forced to stop sculpting and focus instead on drawing. In particular, he sketched those sheltering in the London underground during the Blitz raids (1940-41) and mastered the technique of using wax crayon resist with watercolour and ink washes. The wax resist allowed Moore to play with light and dark, capturing the shapes of figures in the shadows. Mother and Child is one of Moore's most iconic motifs and his increased focus on the subject is notable in the war period. In 1944, he completed a major commission of 'Madonna and Child' for St Matthew's Church, Northampton. This interest was also marked by two major events in the artist's life, his mother's tragic death in 1944 and within two years, the birth of his only daughter, Mary. It was also around this time that the family relocated to Perry Green, Hertfordshire, and his new studios were set in a countryside idyll of bright light and open space. Moore's drawing here moves away from the evocation of life's fragility found in the haunting shelter series and instead embraces warmth and even joy in its study of the unspoken and intimate bond shared between mother and child. Drawing inspiration from African and Pre-Columbian art, the present work was created at the height of Moore's fame and hails from one his most sought-after periods, the immediate post-war years. In 1948, Moore represented Britain at the Venice Biennale, the exhibition was incredibly well received, and he won the coveted International Sculpture Prize that year. Moore said of this landmark exhibition that it "laid the foundation" of his international career. The present double-sided drawing relates to bronzes featured in this exhibition and is beautifully worked in his trademark mixture of inks, watercolour, and wax crayon.
