Catalogue Note

"A carving might be several times over life size and yet be petty and small in feeling—and a small carving only a few inches in height can give the feeling of huge size and monumental grandeur, because the vision behind it is big. Example, Michelangelo’s drawings or a Masaccio madonna..." Henry Moore, "The Sculptor Speaks", in Listener, August 18, 1937, pp. 338–40
