Lot Essay

'Both of the sculptures [the present lot and lot 206] were a gift from Eduardo, along with a number of other works. Eduardo was very generous, it was a pretty regular occurrence to leave with something: a plaster cast or print usually, the bronzes and a couple of signed waxes were more special. I think Eduardo gave me the Computer Head [lot 206] after delivering the finished maquette for the Josephine Baker sculpture (Selfridges).

I first started working for Eduardo while I was a student at The Royal Collage of Art in 1992, and after graduating I continued to work for Eduardo for a number of years. We would often meet for coffee on a Saturday morning, before heading to the studios in Dovehouse Street, to drop off completed work and collect images and reference for the next'.
