Created in 1969, Henry Moore’s seminal work reflects the three primary themes that preoccupied him throughout his career: The reclining figure, the interior and the exterior and the mother and child. Moore envisioned Reclining Connected Forms to exist in nature, as the British landscape significantly inspired him; the artist is widely hailed to be the greatest 20th century British sculptor. The sculpture is the second cast of an edition of nine – six of which are held in museum collections. Part of the Collection of Harry W. & Mary Margaret Anderson, Reclining Connected Forms will be offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s Contemporary Evening Auction. (29 June | New York).
