Eduardo Paolozzi, Horse’s Head, 1946
From the National Galleries of Scotland:

In the late 1940s, the young Eduardo Paolozzi acquired fame for his innovative approach to sculpture. Unlike other artists of the time, he did not strive for ‘Truth to Materials’ or give his works a refined finish. The rough forms and choice of material (concrete, for the first version of this sculpture) was novel and unheard of. In 1947, Robert Melville, a well-known contemporary art critic, described Paolozzi’s ‘Horse’s Head’ as establishing ‘a relationship with half the animal styles of the past without a sign of conformism’ and thought Paolozzi to be the ‘most devoted and least cunning of all of Picasso’s followers’ of the time. The artist later had his original concrete sculpture cast into bronze.
