Wilkinson, The Drawings of Henry Moore, New York & London, 1984, p. 249 Ann Garrould (ed.), Henry Moore, Complete Drawings 1940-49, London, 2001, vol. III, no. AG 45.8, illustrated p. 236 Catalogue Note Two Women and Children is closely related to the bronze Family Group of 1944 (Alan Bowness & Herbert Read, Henry Moore, Sculpture and Drawings, London, 1965, vol. I, no. 233). Executed a year after the bronze, this work reverses the positions of the figures and more fully separates the two pairs. Unlike many drawings that served as the studies for sculpture, this drawing was made after a completed sculpture, highlighting the inter-relatedness of the two media in Henry Moore's creative process. As the artist himself said, ‘although I am primarily a sculptor, I’’’’’’’’ve never separated my interest or appreciation of painting from sculpture’’’’’’’’ (Alan G. Wilkinson, op. cit., p.11).Both the Family Group and the Mother and Child themes were central to Moore's art. In this drawing and the related sculptural groups, he conveys both the gravitas and timelessness of the traditional figurative pose of the Madonna and Child, and the intimacy and temporality of a mother holding her child in her lap. In Moore’’’’’’’’s own words: ‘From very early on I have had an obsession with the Mother and Child theme. It has been a universal theme from the beginning of time and some of the earliest sculptures we’’’’’’’’ve found from the Neolithic Age are of a Mother and Child. I discovered when drawing, I could turn every little scribble, blot or smudge into a Mother and Child. (Later, I did the same with the Reclining Figure theme!) So that I was conditioned, as it were, to see it in everything. I suppose it could be explained as a 'Mother' complex’’’’’’’’ (Henry Moore & John Hedgecoe, Henry Moore, My Ideas, Inspiration and Life as an Artist, London, 1986, p. 155).

Description:
Henry Moore (1898-1986) Mother and Child on Ladderback Chair bronze with golden brown patina Height: 15 1/2 in. (39.4 cm.) Conceived in 1952 and cast in an edition of seven Created in 1952 and cast in an edition of seven, Henry Moore’’’’’’’’s Mother and Child on Ladderback Chair is an enchanting exploration of the tender relationship between parent and child. Capturing the sense of wonder and intense love the two figures share in this moment, the sculpture conveys an impression of the joy that can be found in even the simplest of everyday activities, and was inspired by the artist’’’’’’’’s own experiences as a parent following the birth of his beloved daughter Mary in 1946. While the mother and child theme had long fascinated the artist, leading him to consider it one of his fundamental obsessions, the subject took on a new level of importance in his sculptures as he became a father. When Mary was just four years old the artist designed three small rocking chair sculptures for her amusement, which moved gently backwards and forwards on their curved bases when touched. Each focusing on a seated mother and child, these whimsical, kinetic works moved at different speeds to one another, the shape of their bases and the dispersion of weight in their forms affecting their range of motion. Two years later, in 1952, the artist revisited the subject, adding a more elaborate chair on which his figures could sit, introducing the ‘ladderback’’’’’’’’ detailing to its design. A second, enlarged version of this composition was subsequently created, although Moore felt that this new size and weight restricted the potential movement of the sculpture and removed the rocking function, planting the legs of the chair onto a heavy, rectangular base instead, as in the present work. In keeping with Moore’’’’’’’’s style during the opening years of the 1950s, there is a touch of surrealism in his treatment of form, as both figures’’’’’’’’ limbs and torsos appear thinned and elongated to new extremes, their heads transformed into abstract, amorphous shapes. The addition of a triangular bib-like protrusion at the woman’’’’’’’’s shoulders, meanwhile, creates a new connection between the two bodies, and emphasises the mother’’’’’’’’s gaze as she focuses all her attention on her child. In this way, the present work eschews the playful energy of the previous rocking chair sculptures, and instead focuses on the powerful emotional connection that exists between the two figures, imbuing the motif with a new monumentality and sense of permanence.
