An exhibition based on Moore's last portfolio of prints, together with five related maquettes. Throughout his working life Henry Moore constantly returned to the theme of the mother and child. For Moore this was a 'fundamental obsession'; he never ceased to find interest in the subject, continually exploring new forms and reworking old to release from them new meaning. In 1983 when Moore was in his eighties, he returned to his well-loved subject and started working on a series of etchings of the mother and child, These late prints were some of the most intimate of Moore's work and perhaps stemmed from memories of watching his own wife and child.
A modest leaflet with an essay by Julian Stallabrass was published to accompany the exhibition which originated in 1990 and was disbanded in 1993. No ISBN number
