This woman had been unidentified for years, until a bloke named John Eaton, spotted her on an advert for Community Silverplate Cutlery. Turns out, she is a teacher. Hopefully, this problem will never occur with any of my collages.
She is part of En Morn (1947), by Kurt Schwitters. I have written about Schwitters previously, when I posted about a valentine card, made from a postcard of Ambleside, where he lived.
The square is cut from the little booklet that accompanied the exhibition, ‘Schwitters In Britain’ (2013) at Tate Britain.
This is the seventh patch of my ‘London Exhibition Patchwork’. It is a patchwork made from leaflets of exhibitions I have visited in London. There are sixteen squares in total.
