Eros and Dresser

A striking and beautifully produced woodcut from the set of six woodcuts 'For Charles Rennie Mackintosh'.

On a visit to Germany, Paolozzi discovered a plate in a book called Kosmos c. 1920, which illustrated an artist's impression of organ music. Paolozzi later referred to this image as one he drew on endlessly, giving him the confidence to realise this series of wood prints dedicated to Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1929). The linear and abstract forms in these prints are inspired by music.
