Roland Penrose: The Postcard Collage

The postcard collage is one of the Roland Penrose's signature work. His sensible painting combined with the postcards and creates a vivid and vibrant contrasting palette. When he chose postcards for his work, he was concerned more with colour than subject, but I like to think that Penrose used specific cards purposely, and revealed more stories in each work.

La Méditerranée, Etude Artistique, 1937

Magnetic Moths, 1938
