Wraps, 30.5 by 22.8 cm, 148 pp., heavily illustrated, primarily in black and white with some color images. Light corner and edge wear with rubbing and a few light spots and scratches to the wraps. Signed by Henry Moore on the first leaf: “From Henry Moore.” A touring exhibition catalog, developed by the Columbus Museum of Art, that focuses on Moore’s reclining figures. Included are a short biography of the artist, an essay on his drawings, and a detailed and well-illustrated look at the exhibition pieces, highlighted by Moore’s philosophy of art. “Sculpture should always at first sight have some obscurities, and further meanings. People should want to go on looking and thinking; it should never tell all about itself immediately. Initially both sculpture and painting must need effort to be fully appreciated, or else it is just an empty immediacy like a poster, which is designed to be read by the people on top of a bus in half a second. In fact all art should have some more mystery and meaning to it than is apparent to a quick observer. In my sculpture, explanations often come afterwards.”
