Comments or notes: 

This print was produced in collaboration with the late Tony Evans as a jokey response to op art.  Evans was a successful commercial photographer and close friend who was working on a campaign for Tern Shirts at the time. The shirt in the print is BR's own, purchased in the North End Road, Fulham, where he bought (and often wore) particularly striking shirts.
