Volume 5 of the complete catalogue of Henry Moore's drawings catalogues more than a thousand drawings produced between 1977 and 1981. In 1977 and 1978 Moore was still making sculpture and found little time for drawing, but from 1979 onwards failing health forced him gradually to relinquish his sculptural activity and he turned more and more to drawing as an outlet for his artistic energies. During the 1980s his output of drawings was prodigious, and he constantly experimented with new subjects, as well as returning to themes first examined in the 1920s and 1930s. This volume includes a preface and an explanation of how to use the book, an introduction by the Editor, detailed catalogue entries of each work with a black-and-white illustration, plus 16 pages of colour plates. The catalogue of drawings completes the published recording of Moore's work and provides an essential reference tool for museums, galleries, collectors and students of twentieth-century art.
