Summary

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. This print is one of a number of versions of the screenprint of the same title as the monotype Head 3(P303) made by photo mechanically re-creating the original collage.
