Summary

The garden and grounds surrounding Moore's homes in Perry Green and Forte dei Marmi in Italy provided the inspiration for many tree drawings from 1975 onwards. The Trees album gave Moore the opportunity to experiment with coloured aquatint and the final album of six etchings was published in 1980 by Raymond Spencer Company Ltd for the Henry Moore Foundation in an edition of 50.
