Of this and a second print, ‘Dancers No. 2’, the artist wrote: ‘Both these prints were produced using screens and additional material from the book “Between the Dancers”, a sequence of 10 poems by Ken Smith accompanied by six of my screenprints and published by Circle Press, Guildford at Christmas 1980. The images are based primarily on dance patterns.’ (loc.cit.)
