35.6 x 28 cm art print featuring the work on paper The Children’s Hour (Calcium Light Night) by Eduardo Paolozzi, part of the National Galleries of Scotland collection.

Calcium Light Night is a series of nine screenprints made by Paolozzi while he was living in Berlin. They take as inspiration the work of American composer Charles Ives (1874–1954). The title of each print is the title of a song by Ives, and, like the Cleish Castle Panels, the images are a visual representation of the music. The composer, like the artist, was a magpie–like collector of styles and imagery, weaving brass band music, folk songs, spirituals, and hymns, into his own experiments with musical composition.

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.
