Lit: Giorgio de Marchis and Sandra Pinto, Colla (Rome 1972), No.63c, p.58
Repr: Arti Visive, 1st series, Nos.6-7, January 1954, n.p. (dated 1953)

Screenprint executed by Giorgio Ascani based on a painting by Colla made in 1951 (the painting seems to have been originally called 'Angoli in una Unità'). The lower form has been slightly modified in the print. Made in an edition of 50. Like P01017 and P01015, it was signed on the back by the authors of the standard monograph on Colla's work.

This print and P01017 were reproduced in Arti Visive in January 1954 to illustrate an article by Emilio Villa on 'Scultura di Ettore Colla': the article states that the reproductions are of some of Colla's most recent works. Both were captioned simply 'E. Colla, 1953.'
