In 1946, Moore’s only child Mary was born, adding a new poignancy to his Mother and Child works, a subject that Moore explored throughout his career. These beautiful studies move away from the process-based and into the personal, allowing the viewer an image of Moore not as a world-renowned artist but as a proud new father, looking at his wife and newborn baby girl. Works such as this edition of ‘Mother and Child’ show a delicate, sensitive approach with soft black strokes on white providing a backdrop to a study of a small toddler hugged by her mother.
