Hamilton, Richard

Signed and limited edition prints, artist proof prints and rare works by Richard Hamilton including Swingeing London 67, and pieces from the This is London exhibition. 

Richard Hamilton was a British artist and founding figure of pop art. His 1956 collage Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing? is often considered one of the first pieces of Pop Art ever made. The work critiqued the mass-market imagery often associated with the post-war period by using images found in lifestyle magazines. David Hockney and Peter Blake were both students of the artist during the time he spent teaching at the Royal College of Art. Hamilton designed album artwork for the Beatles and counted René Magritte, Marcel Duchamp and many musicians of the 60s among his friends. He passed away in 2011.
