- Further information
Inspired by a jazz night at the Dominion Arts Club, London, Black has placed dancing figures and pianist amidst a dynamic, zigzagging pattern of lines and earthy colour to evoke the lively beat of the ‘new’ music. 'Music' is one of Black’s earliest prints, made while studying at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art under Claude Flight. It was shown at the first exhibition of linocuts to be held at London’s Redfern Gallery in 1929.
