I did the painting from which the screenprint Brigitte Bardot is derived in January 1963, during my third year at St. Martin's. It was only the fifth painting which I had made using my new idiom, and it was certainly the largest and most successful thus far. I had refined my technique and above all had a clearer idea of how the grain of the painting, governed by the interval of the ruled grid.
The painting measures 152.5 x 122 cm and the source for it wa the logo on the request for entries for the 1963 Young Contemporaries Exhibition - a black and white photograph of Brigitte Bardot on which a black circle had been superimposed. I quite cheekily painted this image and submitted it for the exhibition, and it was duly selected. Now, with the passage of time, my image has eclipsed its long-forgotten source.
