The only place in the Art Gallery of Ontario you're allowed to take pictures is their Henry Moore gallery. Apparently, when he was going to make a big bronze statue, Moore had a go making small plaster versions (or maquettes) first, to check he liked the shape. One day, he gave his entire collection of maquettes to the AGO, because he liked Toronto.
