HENRY MOORE PORTFOLIO PRINTS 1950-1981
This group of six lithographs was not produced as a portfolio, though they were conceived as a group with the intention of publishing them as a set. The works developed from an original drawing transferred onto a master plate. Moore experimented with a number of combinations of foreground image on proofs of the background turned in different directions. The background of Ideas III (P5265) is turned the opposite way to the backgrounds of Ideas IV(P5266) and Ideas VI (P5368). Moore enjoyed the experiment and carried it forward in another group of prints. The works were published in 1984 by Raymond Spencer Company Ltd for the Henry Moore Foundation in an edition of 50

- Media LITHOGRAPH
The depiction of shapes and forms on a flat surface chiefly by means of lines although colour and shading may also be included. Materials most commonly used are pencil, ink, crayon, charcoal, chalk and pastel, although other materials, including paint, can be used in combination.
All copies of a book, print, portfolio, sculpture, etc., issued or produced at one time or from a single set of type. Printed works can be made in an edition of between one and many thousands of copies. With most printing techniques the plate or screen will become worn if very many prints are made, so to maintain quality (and exclusivity) editions of original prints are usually kept below one hundred copies and normally average between thirty and fifty copies. Prints made up of several different plates can be extremely complicated and time-consuming to edition, so in these cases editions are kept low for practical reasons. Sculptural editions are a set of cast sculptures taken from the same mould or master. These editions are usually much lower, consisting of no more than six casts. Though each cast in an edition might have a lower value than a unique piece, it may be a more effective way of offsetting costs of an expensive process such as bronze casting.
A set of pictures (as drawings, photographs or prints) either bound in book form or loose in a folder. These can be by the same artist or individual works by a selection of artists. The term also refers to the folder which holds the set.
