          Screenprint on paper. Purchased by Tate in 1976

          7. ‘Crying to the walls: My God! My God! Will she relent?’ is the seventh screen print from a series of images by Caulfield called ‘Some Poems of Jules Laforgue’. Laforgue’s poetry is not particularly visual, Caulfield’s response was to create a series of cryptic images of views and objects that, while not representing anything mentioned in the poems, manages to capture something of their abiding melancholy. This image depicts abstract details of a yellow clock on a yellow wall. The clock has a white face and shows the time as five past four.

          Artist details

          English painter and printmaker, Patrick Caulfield studied at Chelsea School of Art and at the Royal College of Art, just one year below the students identified as the originators of pop art. In the early 1960s Caulfield's painting was characterised by flat images of objects against unmodulated areas of colour. Gradually his attention shifted to architectural elements. During the 1980s he again turned to a more stripped-down aesthetic, particularly in large paintings with a vivid sense of place.
