Large Abstract Reclining Woman Sculpture
A large abstract sculpture of a reclining woman, probably after Henry Moore’s famous Reclining figure plaster sculpture. This sculpture is made of some kind of resin or polystone cast. Signed at the back.
Reclining Figure is the original plaster sculpture from which a bronze cast was made for the Festival of Britain in 1951. The making of the piece was recorded in a pioneering documentary on Moore made by John Read for the BBC that year. The plaster sculpture remained in Moore’s possession until 1978 when it was included in the artist’s gift of thirty-six sculptures to the Tate Gallery.
