Detail from recently framed piece A Study of a Henry Moore Dressing Gown in Motion 2009 (They Made Me A Fugitive, 1947)
My sequence of 57 drawings documents a Henry Moore fabric in motion. In 1946 Moore was commissioned to produce designs for Ascher headscarves. His barbed wire design was used to
make a dressing gown which was worn by actor Sally Gray in the 1947 film They Made Me a Fugitive. The gown is worn in a scene in which Gray's character is beaten and falls to the floor.
