Art Gallery Honors Eduardo Paolozzi
The Royal Academy is paying tribute to Scottish sculptor, printmaker, and filmmaker Eduardo Paolozzi by showcasing more than 100 of his works spanning from 1940 to the late-1970s. Hailing from private collections, "Two Forms on a Rod," "Table Sculpture," and "Saint Sebastian" will highlight the late Paolozzi (he passed in 2005), and amply reflect his cubism- and surrealist-influenced style.
Daniel Hermann, the Paolozzi collection's curator, said, "He is undoubtedly one of the most versatile artists of the 20th century. As an artist, he reinvented himself time and time again." It isn't always easy to explicitly see such reinvention from an artist if you aren't living concurrent to him; the Paolozzi collection provides everybody with an opportunity to do so.
