Labyrinth of Steps and Doors. - 1963. - Drawing (reproduction) : pen and ink : 120 x 100 cm

Enlarged reproduction of a Norman McLaren drawing of a labyrinth of doors and stairs with surprising tricks of perspective. The artist wrote about it: "Reminiscences of Scottish architecture and my interest in labyrinths seemed to coalesce in my mind." Reproduced in The Drawings of Norman McLaren = Les dessins de Norman McLaren / Norman McLaren and Michael White. Montreal: Tundra Books, 1975; p. 62.

There are other versions of this drawing, notably a colour silk screen print given to the NFB in 2006 by André Bachand, president of the Club de la gravure, an association of artists of which Norman McLaren was a member.
