3 Jan. This group of prints first shown g during the Hungarian Festival in
Glasgow this year, came to be in the gallery’s possession by accident rather than design. Left in the gallery for an opinion just after the war, they subsequently became forgotten by their owners and were not identified and acquired until 1982. The ‘General Ludd’ series shows an
idealised version of the exploits of ‘ the anti-capitalist leader ofthe
English Luddites. ‘Analysis‘ shows Uitz’s more visual interests.
