A5 notebook featuring the work on paper Four German Songs (from 'Calcium Light Night') by Eduardo Paolozzi, from the National Galleries of Scotland collection.
This bright geometric and dynamic screenprint is one of many striking artworks that Paolozzi produced during his artistic career. In the 1960s, Paolozzi's graphic artwork was groundbreaking, and he explored the possibilities and limits of screen printing. The resulting prints are characterised by their references to pop culture and technological advances.
Scottish artist, Eduardo Paolozzi (7 March 1924 – 22 April 2005), was born in Leith near Edinburgh. He is best known for his pioneering developments in the iconic Pop Art movement, but he is also widely considered for his bronze sculptures, screenprints and collages. Paolozzi was particularly interested in the mass media and in science and technology and studied in Edinburgh, London and spent two years in Paris from 1947 – 1949. Alongside teaching at various art schools, Paolozzi developed his artistic practices in printmaking and sculptures and gained worldwide recognition for his incredible artwork.
