Notes on sculpture - Henry Moore

Henry Moore, Large Four Piece Reclining Figure, 1973, cast bronze - San Francisco

“It is a mistake for a sculptor or a painter to speak or write very often about his job. It releases tension needed for his work. By trying to express his aims with rounded-off logical exactness, he can easily become a theorist whose actual work is only a caged-in exposition of conceptions in terms of logic and words.”

Henry Moore, in “Notes on sculpture” (“Writings and Conversations” – Edited by Alan Wilkinson)
