Mr Monkey in Toronto, October 2

"They don't look like Henry Moores to me"

Mr Monkey in the Henry Moore gallery Mr Monkey looking at Henry Moore maquettes

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.
