Summary

The four lithographs from the Norwegian edition of the Henry Moore Sculptures in Landscape book follow the theme of the monograph in so far as Moore wished to show his sculpture in landscape settings. The sculpture subjects are real enough but the landscapes are imaginary, hovering halfway between fantasy and reality, returning to the Piranesi-like images of some Elephant Skull (P5062-P5069)etchings, though here produced in soft dreamlike shapes colours. The four lithographs were published in an edition of 50 by J M Stenersens Forland AS, Oslo.
