In early 1922 Moore, then a student at the Royal College of Art, lived with his friend Raymond Coxon in lodgings at Acfold Road, west London. This photograph in Coxon’s archive shows a now lost dancing figure by Moore. Created in plaster or clay, it shows Moore’s awareness of contemporary cubist sculpture by such continental artists Ossip Zadkine and Henri Laurens.
