Eduardo Paolozzi Prints for Sale

Sir Eduardo Luigi Paolozzi, KBE, FRA (1924-2005) was a Scottish sculptor and artist. He was born in Leith in north Edinburgh and studied at the Edinburgh College of Art in 1943, briefly at the St Martin's School of Art and then at the Slade School of Fine Art after which he worked in Paris, France. While in Paris Paolozzi became acquainted with Alberto Giacometti, Jean Arp, Constantin Brancusi, Georges Braque and Fernand Léger. This period became an important influence for his later work. After Paris, he moved back to London eventually establishing his studio in Chelsea. The studio was a work-shop filled with hundreds of found objects, models, sculptures, materials, tools, toys and stacks of books. Paolozzi was interested in everything and would use a variety of objects and materials in his work, particularly his collages.  Paolozzi was a founder of the Independent Group in 1952, which is regarded as the precursor to the mid 1950s British and late 1950s American Pop Art movements
