“In the early part of her career, [Prunella] Clough wrote detailed descriptions of things that caught her eye or imagination, as well as instructions for paintings she had visualised. Many of these ‘word sketches’ correlate closely to subsequent works” (Tate Britain, 2007).


Her archive at the Tate contains ideas, perceptions, images, photographs, and experiments shown in words on scraps, photographs cropped by the artist, and postcards she reworks. Modern, 1940s-90s.


Various Materials.


Artist: Prunella Clough.
