Henry Moore (1898-1986) made a series of twelve Upright Motives in the 1950s. They are inspired by organic forms Moore would habitually collect while out walking on his estate in Perry Green in Hertfordshire. Other sculptures in the series can be found on the west coast of Scotland, in the Netherlands and Texas in the USA.
