Henry Moore panel emerges in Folkestone

17 May 2012Written by ATG Reporter

The sale at Grand Auctions in Folkestone on May 23 will offer a textile wall panel designed by Henry Moore in the 1940s, of which only 65 were made.

Moore was commissioned to design textiles by Zika Ascher, a Czech textile manufacturer, who had fled Germany before the war.

These panels were originally priced at 70 guineas but it seems that the artist abandoned plans for further panels due to a lack of interest.

Rarely seen on the market, the 5ft 2in x 3ft 11in (1.06 x 1.02m) example at Folkestone is estimated at £3000-5000.
