Eduardo Paolozzi was born in Edinburgh, Scotland to Italian parents. Trained at the Edinburgh College of Art, the St. Martin's School of Art, and the Slade School, his first one-man exhibition was in 1947 at the Mayor Gallery in London. Later that year, Paolozzi moved to Paris where he met Giacometti, Brancusi, Braque, and Leger, and as a result was greatly influenced by Surrealism. In 1964, he showed sculptures at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and in 1967, he received the First Prize for Sculpture at the Carnegie International Exhibition of Contemporary Painting and Sculpture in Pittsburgh. He became Professor of Sculpture at the Munich Akademie der Bildenden Künstem in 1981, and in 1986 was made “Her Majesty’s Sculptor in Ordinary for Scotland” by Queen Elizabeth.
