In 1978 Henry Moore gave the Tate Gallery a gift of thirty-six sculptures in bronze, plaster and marble. Four of the large-scale sculptures included in the gift were installed in the Tate Gallery garden as part of the exhibition held in July-August to celebrate Henry Moore’s eightieth birthday. This photograph shows Three Piece Reclining Figure No.11961–2 (T02289) being positioned on the lawn.
