DateTuesday 14th January 2020 to Tuesday 31st March 2020
DescriptionSir Eduardo Paolozzi is considered one of the most versatile sculptors in post-war Britain. He was born into an Italian-Scots family and grew up in Leith, Edinburgh, later moving to London. Throughout his career, Paolozzi combined his work as an artist with teaching in art colleges in British and, for periods, in Germany. He had an enthusiastic and encyclopaedic variety of interests in the world and refelected this by frequently changing the media and styles in which he worked. By looking closely at material from his studio, you can discover more about the man and the source of his ideas. The studio is divided into areas for different types of activity: desks for reading and working with paper, shelves of reference books, a large central table for modeling, and working with plaster casts, and a bunk for resting. Paolozzi was interested in a number of themes and by seeing his studio you can get an idea of the ways he worked and the inspiration he drew from the world around him. Paolozzi also generously gave a large body of his work to the Galleries, some of which is permanently on display. This gift includes a substantial number of sculptures, prints and drawings, as well as numerous artefacts (books, toys, machine parts and other items) which have inspired his work.
