    As has been noted by Roger Berthoud, the period 1962 to 1965, to which Sculptural Form belongs, was an incredibly productive one for Henry Moore. In particular, these years saw a variety of conceptions which had in mind contemporary architectural settings, coming as they did, off the back of the celebrated Unesco Reclining Figure which was completed in 1958. As such 'these works have a toughness, a muscularity seen only fleetingly since the 1930s. They are very masculine'. (Roger Berthoud, The Life of Henry Moore, Faber and Faber, London, 2003, p.342).
