Catalogue Note

Initially conceived as a series that should be hung along a wall in a single line, Indian Views was inspired by the sights which the artist encountered whilst travelling in an old-fashioned Indian railway carriage.

The series also marks the point at which the frame becomes an important formal device for most of the artist's future prints.
