Summary

This print was one of the first coloured screenprints Paolozzi made. Based on earlier drawings and collages, it is also closely related to the imagery of his film of 1960-62, The History of Nothing. He worked with the master printer, Chris Prater at the Kelpra Studio, on the work. It was printed in an edition of 40 impressions using the same screens throughout but with different colour combinations so that each numbered print was in fact a unique work.
