Pauline Boty’s collaged wall

The collaged wall of works of art from across the centuries, figures from stage and screen and more created by Pauline Boty at her flat in west London was chosen as the beginning and backdrop for Huw Weldon’s introduction to Ken Russell’s 1962 documentary Pop Goes the Easel.
In addition to being filmed by Russell the changing combinations of predominantly cuttings from magazines and postcards were captured by numerous photographers including John Aston, Lewis Morley, Michael Seymour, Tony Evans, Michael Ward and latterly Roger Mayne with the image shown below from 1964.
The key beneath the image identifies some 60 items [with grey tinted backgrounds] which are detailed in the list following, including: title or name, artist or photographer and source and date where known. Unidentified items have a plain white background, whilst those still requiring confirmation are marked with the code [TBC] following their entry in the list

A note on the wall’s contents
It is greatly hoped that this page will provide a starting point for identifying the array of items chosen by Boty to adorn the wall, and that in time more of them will be identified and the numbered list expanded further.
All comments, corrections, clarifications and suggestions from visitors to the site in this regard would be greatly appreciated, via the Contact form here please: [link]
