'The importance of Henry Moore's drawings for sculpture cannot be over-estimated. Few great sculptors have left through their drawings such an extensive record of the genesis of so many sculptures. Between 1921 and the early 1950s almost all Moore's most important carvings and bronzes, as well as many lesser works, had their origin in the notebook page... they are crucial to our knowledge and understanding of the context and background in which Moore's art developed' -A.G. Wilkinson
