From his early sculptures of the 1930s, to the famous “Shelter drawings” made during the WW2 , up to his renowned bronzes of the sixties, the work of Moore has often coped with the representation of the human figure, although in radically innovative forms. «In my opinion, long and intense study of the human figure is the necessary foundation for a sculptor’s schooling.» (Henry Moore, 1956).
