Moore produced an enormous number of small maquettes over the course of his career and they played an important part in his artistic process. A selection of them is displayed here. As he explained: “Sometimes I make ten or twenty maquettes for every one that I use in a large scale—the others may get rejected. If a maquette keeps its interest enough for me to want to realize it as a full-scale final work, then I might make a working model in an intermediate size, in which changes will be made before going to the real, full-sized sculpture.”
