Reproduction print of Draped Reclining Figure in a Landscape (c 1973/77) by Henry Moore.

Throughout his career, Henry Moore focused on the motif of the reclining female figure.

He imagined the classical theme in modernist terms, abstracting the human form, and this picture is characteristic of his sculptural drawings from the period of the 1970's and the 1980's when his figures became increasingly detailed and realistic.

The original is a mixture of pencil, charcoal, grey wash, watercolour wash, chinagraph and gouache.

He used this mixed media to convey a sense of depth so that his drawings were always a means of representing the three-dimensional form in space on a flat surface.

Moore was inspired by the effect used in ancient Greek sculptor known as "Wet-Drapery".

Moore always wanted to portray the British landscape as idyllic and as if it was untouched by the destruction of both the First and the Second World Wars. Hence, the curves of the figure echo the organic shapes and rolling hills of the landscape behind.
