Descriptions
Commentary
This print comes after Paolozzi's long exploration of mechanistic form through the Kelpra Studio. He has allowed American Pop art to loosen his earnestness. The image is, while appreciative of Pop developments, sly in its criticism, with Warhol, Lichtenstein, and Johns all receiving jabs, along with the collective weight of the elephantine American dominance over Britain, where Pop may truly be said to have begun, with Paolozzi, Hamilton, and others. A version of the design appeared on the cover of "Studio International" (v. 182, no. 937, Oct. 1971), and the edition of the print was sponsored and sold by the journal, which had been for decades Britain's pre-eminent contemporary art magazine ($20 to subscribers, $30 to non-subscribers).
