There is no sculpture entitled ‘Three Circles I’, but Wall explored the theme of T00835 slightly earlier in his ‘Jan–Feb’ 1966 (collection: Arts Council). In both works a leaning cylinder connects a cube open on two sides to the end disc in a progression of three flat discs joined at the circumference. In T00835 these discs lie on the ground and the cube, in a sloping position, is uppermost; in ‘Jan–Feb’ 1966, the cube rests squarely on the ground and the cylinder rises to the uppermost of the three discs of which the lower edge of the lowest rests on the ground.
