Two Piece Reclining Figure: Maquette No.1 1960 (LH 473)

#
#

bronze
length 24cm


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 realise it as a full-size 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. Changes get made at all these stages.
