Maquette for Madonna and Child  1943
Bronze
object: 146 x 54 x 67 mm
sculpture
Purchased 1945

The mother and child had been a major theme in Moore's work since the 1920s. Yet when the vicar of the Church of St Matthew, Northampton, invited Moore to make a sculpture of the Madonna and Child for the church, he was reluctant to accept. He felt unsure how to adapt his secular interests to the Christian tradition.

These bronzes are casts of the original terracotta models he made for the project. They are unusually naturalistic and steeped in references to religious art of the Renaissance. This suggests Moore was trying to produce a sculpture that people would find both modern and familiar.

Maquette for Family Group  1944
Bronze
object: 137 x 114 x 67 mm
sculpture
Purchased 1945

These maquettes, or preparatory models, were made during the mid-1940s, when Moore was working on a commission for a sculpture for a progressive school for children and parents. The theme of the family was particularly relevant.

In the end none of Moore's designs were chosen. Four years later he re-considered these models when planning a commission for a similarly progressive school, Barclay Secondary School in Stevenage. A cast of the full scale Family Group he made for the school is on display in this gallery. Later still, Moore used these maquettes as source material for the other family groups.

Family Group  1949
Bronze
object: 1540 x 1180 x 700 mm, 475 kg
sculpture
Purchased 1950

Family Group is derived from one of a number of maquettes that Moore made for a sculpture for Impington Village College in Cambridgeshire. In the end none of them was accepted. Several years later, however, he was approached to make a sculpture for the Barclay Secondary School in Stevenage and returned to the theme. The bronze was cast in an edition of four. One is still at the Barclay Secondary School. The others were acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Nelson D Rockefeller, and Tate.
