‘Bronze Cross’ was bought by Harlow Art Trust in 1963 with the help of a grant from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. This totemic bronze is also known as ‘Upright Motive No. 2’, as it is part of a series of works Moore made in the mid-1950s. The title given to the Harlow sculpture was agreed after consultation with Moore. By 1963, Harlow’s Water Gardens and Civic Centre had been completed and the Trust wanted its most prestigious sculptures to be located in this area.
