The series of four items, each being dedicated to a person close to the artist, is an excellent illustration of Ginsborg’s inclination to experiment with playful formal ideas. One of this series is preserved in the collection, bearing the name of the artist’s daughter in its title. The structural skeleton of the four cheerful constructions painted with bright unarticulated colours, which can perhaps be tagged “relief-objects” as for their genre, is registered in the Small work drawing (MO.91.12).
