Figure Sculpture - Henry Moore Jacob Epstein Elizabeth Frink Paul Day Bas Relief

Paul Day

1967 - 

Large scale sculpture by Paul Day 
made as a small clay sculpture then scaled up at a foundry and cast in metal

Look at the three -dimensional mural or frieze around the base of the two figures

The frieze shows three dimensional pictures of life at the railway station

The sculpture scenes are made in clay and cast into metal - look at the textures and detail

Elizabeth Frink

These giant imaginative heads were made out of plaster which is carved with a chisel and then cast into bronze

Henry Moore

Like the Paul Day sculptures these were made out of clay over a wire frame. The clay model is then cast in metal

Line Drawing / Continuous Line Drawing

Use of Line

Giacometti has built up lines almost sculpting with line like you might wire or wire wool

Egon Schiele 

Maybe not continuous line but I think there is a sense of a line going for a work, a looseness in the way the arms and hands have been drawn

Henry Moore 
A complete master when it comes to drawing. Using a fog of lines to create light and dark and form. Look at how Moore has drawn around the object to create highlights

Claire Rollet 

Beautiful link drawings that have been digitised and digitally coloured. Again probably not continuous line drawings but look at the quality of the line. Rollet is an illustrator, loook at the prints in the shop if you want to look at examples of these landscape images
