'Family' by Henry Moore - 1935

Henry Moore's work has become in the course of the years increasingly abstract, but that was, as he himself said, "just because I believe that in this way I can represent the human psychological content of my work as directly and as intensely as possible." - source Taschen publication 2007 with Jeremy Lewison

Moore wrote: 'There are universal shapes to which everybody is subconsciously conditioned and to which they can respond if their conscious control does not shut them off."
