Henry Moore. Catalogue of Graphic Work. [Together with signed lithograph].
Signed limited edition, number 110 of 200 copies signed by Henry Moore. Loosely inserted as issued is a signed lithograph of “Seated Mother and Child” (1973), which is printed on Barcham Green, numbered 35/100 and housed in its original card chemise. This deluxe edition of the catalogue raisonné of the artist’s work in the print medium from 1931 to 1972 is illustrated with gorgeous reproductions which truly capture the texture and colour of the prints. Moore’s earliest prints, made when he was a student, were woodcuts, but he quickly moved on to etching and lithograph. At the time this book went to press he was experimenting with aquatints in colour and soft ground etching. The preface, by Alistair Grant, is in English, French and German.
