P01951 GIROT AND PLAZA 1964

Not inscribed
Screenprint (two trial proofs on one sheet), printed at Kelpra Studio, 23 1/8×36 (58.6× 91.2)
Presented anonymously through the Friends of the Tate 1980

These two images were each separately printed in editions of 10, published by the artist (op.cit., nos.20 and 21). The word ‘PLAZA’ was omitted in the final version. These (and others made the same year) are related to Paolozzi's animated film ‘History of Nothing’, 1960–2, made from engraved illustrations of machinery, interiors and townscapes.
