Lot Essay

‘The format of the spin around a central point recalls the spinning of a record on a turntable, perhaps reflecting Hirst's love for popular music, having once claimed that the Beatles had a bigger influence on him than Picasso’ (M. Sawyer, ‘Artful Dodgers’, in The Oberver: Music Monthly, April 2009).
