The head was a constant subject for Paolozzi throughout his career but the period 1952-54 marked a particularly intense period of development. He made a series of powerful monotype head studies in 1953 which are clearly related to the small bronze head sculptures of the same year. In this work, the monotype base provided an overall surface texture which was then worked over with a variety of materials: gouache was used to depict the outline of the head, nose, mouth and eyes.
