Moore found a sense of the joy and energy in the medium of drawing, as well as a real appreciation of the respect and tenderness with which he approached the human body as a vehicle for communication in his artistic practice. In the 60s and 70s, Moore’s engagement with drawing became even more pleasurable than functional and his drawing subsequently became more personal and expressive. Drawing also became a mode of visual research that enabled him to explore subjects unsuited to sculpture. Moore portrayed the melding of human figure with natural forms and he explored the staple reclining figure subject within his drawings, as he stated that “within the subject that you’ve done a dozen times before, you are free to invent a completely new form-idea.”
