Moore, Henry (1898 – 1986)

A two-page autograph letter signed by Henry Moore, ‘Henry’, May 17th 1942. The artist writes to Hartley, happy to send requested photographs: ‘I think the photograph of the Mesen’s niece ‘The Bride’ might be suitable for what you want… but also I’m enclosing a second photograph of a carving that’s been so long away in America that I’d forgotten it – and seeing it again now the photograph seems rather a nice one. So use that if you like it better.’

He goes on, ‘I’m getting very short of prints of photographs so will you please send me back the one you don’t choose, and the one you do choose whenever you’ve finished with it.’

In fine condition.
