Eduardo Paolozzi – part 5

Eduardo Paolozzi and Freda Elliot on their wedding day

Of Italian descent, Eduardo Paolozzi (1924-2005) was born in Leith near Edinburgh, Scotland. He studied in Edinburgh and London and spent two years in Paris from 1947, where he produced enigmatic, bronze sculptures reminiscent of those by Giacometti. During the same period he made a series of dada and surrealist-inspired collages in which magazine advertisements, cartoons and machine parts are combined, thus anticipating the concerns of Pop Art. Alongside teaching at various art schools he developed his printmaking and sculpture. Paolozzi was particularly interested in the mass media and in science and technology.

For full biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works, see parts 1 - 4 also.

This is part 5 of a 7-part series on the works of Eduardo Paolozzi:
