Summary

To celebrate Moore's 80th birthday in 1978 an anniversary portfolio was put together, comprising lithographs of various subjects chosen from images which had already reached proofing stage. Some of the works were based on a fragment of another print; Moore used the fragment in a variety of inventive ways: in one it was a bench, in another a pillar or a seat and, in the work here, is used as the ‘chairback’. The portfolio contained nine lithographs published by Orde Levinson, London in an edition of 50.
