SOLD Get an Email Alert if it's listed again

An original screenprint with lithography and hand-torn and creased collage adhered to a background of coloured paper, plate 25 from Bunk, a series of 47 images reproducing original collages made between 1944-1952. Signed in pencil lower right, un-numbered. Printed by Chris Betambeau at Advanced Graphics and published by Snail Chemicals. In very good condition with strong, bright colours and the glued elements stable.

Created from the covers of science fiction journals, magazine advertisements and photographs, and used in Paolozzi's groundbreaking 1952 lecture called Bunk! at the ICA in London, the original collages are considered as the 'opening salvo' of the Pop Art movement in art.

I was a Rich Mans Plaything is one of the most desirable and rare images from Bunk, and it is especially unusual to find it signed. We have several signed and unsigned prints available from this set, please contact us for more information.
