public_access_description
This print by Patrick Caulfield (born 1936) shows how to make fried egg on bread, with simple line drawings giving step by step instructions. It is in Caulfield's characteristic distinctive style, with thick black outlines used to depict everyday objects. Caulfield is associated with the Pop Art movement, and shares Pop's enthusiasm for the banal and familiar aspects of modern life. This print was a part of a set published by the Space Studios in London in 2002. The book SPACE Cooks included recipes, some practical and some conceptual, by 103 leading contemporary artists.
