'Three Seated Figures', 1974, by Henry Moore. Exhibited at #MasterpieceFair by the @new_art_centre.
Made by Brose Patrick Studios in Scotland after an original drawing from 1944, 'Three Seated Figures' is one of only seven tapestries Moore had made in Scotland; a further twenty three were made at West Dean in Sussex.
The idea of Henry Moore's collaborations with tapestry studios was first suggested by the artist's daughter Mary. The designs for the tapestries were taken from earlier drawings, which Moore carefully selected, and which were then enlarged up to ten times their original size. .
They depict a series of typical motifs including reclining women, the mother and child and the seated figure. A family subject was chosen as a main theme following the birth of Moore's first grandchild.
