(and smaller) (2) A gift from the artist to the present owner's father, Sir Norman Reid. MORNING SESSION Williams p. 55 and 64 When first instructed in the art of printmaking in 1950 by his friend and fellow artist, Bill Irvin, Naum Gabo discovered an unexpected relationship between the carving of a woodblock and his own renowned sculptural medium. Sir Norman Reid was a close friend of Gabo’’’’s, having first met him shortly after he was appointed as the Director of the Tate in 1964. He described Gabo’’’’s exploration into printmaking to be “like that of a bassoon player who takes up the flute- there is a certain freshness and delight in exploring new territory.” The term Monoprint (monotype) ‘is used to describe Gabo’’’’s prints; uninterested in multiplying his works, Gabo experimented with colour variants of many images, however each one remains a unique impression. Similar to Gabo’’’’s sculptural masterpieces, his monoprints seek to explore the shape itself and its space on the page. He makes an attempt to draw comparisons with familiar objects, only to coerce the eye around the linear shapes and explore their subdued rhythms.
