Summary

Paolozzi produced several versions of this screenprint, photo-mechanically re-creating his original collage of different machine parts taken from trade catalogues. This print, and also the experimental ‘wet’ proof of Motor Figure (P308), were printed by the artist in 1958 and are closely aligned to his sculpture of the same period which incorporated machine parts embedded into surfaces. Both were finally editioned in 1962 at Kelpra Studio, London.
