Sculpture

Working Model for Draped Reclining Figure

Period:
20th Century
Description:
This is one of an edition of nine made between 1976 and 1979. It was initially placed in the open courtyard of Rozelle House, Ayr. Moore said "… bronze naturally in the open air (particularly near the sea) will turn with time and the action of the atmosphere to a beautiful green". It is now on display within the house. Over the years many hands have touched its undulating contours, as Moore would have wished, for he said "Tactile experience is very important as an aesthetic dimension in sculpture. Our sense of sight is always associated with our sense of touch".
