Reproduction print of Family Group (1944) by Henry Moore.

This is a drawing made in 1944 at the time when the artist was contemplating a major sculpture for Impington Village College in Cambridgeshire, although none of his maquettes (preliminary models for a major sculpture) were ever accepted. Several years later however, he was approached to make a sculpture for The Barclay Secondary School in Stevenage in Hertfordshire and returned to the theme and his bronze was cast in an edition of four. One is still at The Barclay Secondary School and the others were acquired by The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Nelson D. Rockefeller and the Tate Gallery in London.

During the Second World War, Moore produced powerful drawings of families and, especially, on Londoners sheltering from the Blitz.

This drawing was completed after Moore had left Central London, where he moved to a farmhouse called Hoglands in the hamlet of Perry Green in Hertfordshire and this became Moore's home and workshop for the rest of his life.

Moore's drawings created during the war period helped to boost his international reputation, particularly in America, where many examples of his work were included in an exhibition which toured North America throughout the war years.

Each print is hand numbered, accompanied by a certificate signed by the Master Printer and is numbered to match the print. The editions are unlimited.

This print is unframed and comes rolled.
