Eduardo Paolozzi

Four Towers

About this artwork

The 1960s brought a new approach to sculpture for Eduardo Paolozzi. Abandoning the rough and coarse appearance of the surfaces of his earlier bronzes, he started to use prefabricated parts made from aluminium. Here, Paolozzi draws on the modernist tradition of “ready-made” parts in sculpture as well as on the ideal of the artist as an engineer: He distances himself from the notion of the artist's personality being expressed by his work.
