Henry Moore, Pitboys at Pit Head, 1942

In the early 1940s Moore was commissioned by the War Artists Advisory Committee, to illustrate the work of the ‘Bevin Boys’, the young men who were conscripted to dig coal to fuel the factories producing armaments for the war effort. He produced the work in Wheldale Colliery in Castleford where his father had been pit manger. He used a technique of layering white wax crayon with watercolour, then adding detail and texture with intricate marks of pen and ink.
