Summary

This group of six lithographs was not produced as a portfolio, though they were conceived as a group with the intention of publishing them as a set. The works developed from an original drawing transferred onto a master plate. Moore experimented with a number of combinations of foreground image on proofs of the background turned in different directions. The background of Ideas III (P5265) is turned the opposite way to the backgrounds of Ideas IV(P5266) and Ideas VI (P5368). Moore enjoyed the experiment and carried it forward in another group of prints. The works were published in 1984 by Raymond Spencer Company Ltd for the Henry Moore Foundation in an edition of 50
