The notes transcribed from the back of this photograph are as follows: Sculptor Sculptor Henry Moore watches intently as his eight-ton bronze Two Forms is lowered onto its permanent site outside the Art Gallery of Ontario on Saturday. With him are his daughter Mary, and Alan Wilkinson, curator of the Henry Moore Centre at the gallery. The sculptor donated the original plaster form to the gallery, which assumed the cost of casting it in bronze, around $85,000, through a provincial grant. After Henry Moore had supervised the siting of Two Forms, the bronze was moved to an adjacent site where it will remain until a concrete plinth is poured on final site at Dundas and McCaul Streets.
