Henry Moore: v.1: Complete Drawings: 1916-29
Volume 1 of this six-volume catalogue raisonne of Henry Moore's drawings follows the publication of Volumes 5 and 6 in 1994. While the later volumes look at the drawings produced between 1977 to 1983, Volume 1 journeys back to the earliest days of Moore's career, reproducing around 1,000 drawings from the period 1916-29. This was an eventful time for Moore, and covers his student days, his first public commission - the North Wind relief for the London Transport Executive Building, St James's (1928) - and his first one-man show at the Warren Gallery in London (1928).
