In 1955 Henry Moore returned to the idea for a series of Upright Motives (originated a year earlier) following a commission for the courtyard of the Olivetti Building, Milan. You will find an example of this important series here at Houghton Hall: Upright Motive No.8 (1955-56). This is a sculpture cast in bronze.
