          Screen print on paper. Purchased by Tate in 1999

          This screenprint depicts five women shown from behind in various poses against a colourful background. Four of the figures are standing and holding their arms above or behind their heads, while the fifth sits on the ground with her legs open. The print’s title broadly translates as ‘Les Demoiselles d’Avignon view from the rear’, which is an overt reference to Picasso’s painting but with notes of humour as in Picasso’s version, the women are seen from the front.

          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.
