In May 1979 Henry Moore’s Upright Motive No.2, Upright Motive No.1: Glenkiln Cross and Upright Motive No.7, all 1955–6, were installed on a specially designed base in the Tate Gallery garden. This photograph shows the sculptures prior to their unveiling, whilst covered in protective cloth. The image is reminiscent of Moore’s drawing Crowd Looking at a Tied-Up Object 1942 (British Museum, London).
