Footnotes

  • These drawings are examples of Walsh taking images from popular sources - presumably newspapers - and using them as a basis for his artwork. This working method and the use of airbrush places Walsh closer to the work of American Pop artists including Larry Rivers and Jasper Johns than their British contemporaries.
