Linocut (1949). Printed from 4 blocks in Yellow Ochre; Red; Cobalt Blue; Beige. Original image size: 31.1 x 18.1cm.’Why, London itself is a Futurist City! Look at those brilliant-hued motor-‘buses, these enormous, glaring posters. Look at the coloured electric lights that flash advertisements in the night’*. So wrote Filippo Marinetti, the founder and leader of Futurism, who would justly have been enthralled by Tschudi’s celebratory print.
