King and Queen (sculpture)
King and Queen (LH 350) is a bronze sculpture by Henry Moore, designed in 1952. It depicts two figures, one male and one female, seated beside each other on a bench. Several casts were made in 1953, and one further cast in 1957.
Moore made a maquette in 1952, and the first full-size cast was commissioned for Middelheim Museum in Antwerp. A cast was made for the Glenkiln Sculpture Park, and one is installed at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. Another cast is displayed at the Henry Moore Foundation in Perry Green, Hertfordshire.
