Henry Moore in his Hampstead studio. The story goes, his wife was keen to have him work all the time - his artworks fetched a lot of money even then - but Henry Moore found a way around this. He would sit in a chair in this upstairs studio, with a newspaper and whisky in one hand and a walking stick in the other. Every few minutes he would bang the stick hard on the floor so that the missus would think he was actually sculpting.

Henry Moore..."A hole, Moore explains connects one side of a sculpture with another, making it more three dimensional; Three dimension is what sculpture is all about."
