Winged Curve

Bridget Riley

Although printed in 1966, Winged Curve was not published at that time. The work had been printed on rectangular sheets and Riley felt, then, that the image had not quite worked. The edition was kept in the studio and it was upon rediscovery and long consideration, around the turn of the century, that the decision was taken to crop the sheet to the near-square format that we see today. This adjustment resolved Riley's concerns and, happily, the edition was signed and released in 2001.
