We present a fine selection of original drawings and sketches by famous british artist Allen Jones. The Show will be completed by several prints.
Allen Jones, born in 1937 in Britain, is one of the last one alive famous Pop Artists. He became famous in the 60ies and his works are in nearly all museums like Tate Britain, MOMA New York, or Museum Ludwig in Cologne. Allen Jones was one of a group of students which included Derek Boshier, David Hockney, R. B. Kitaj and Peter Phillips, who radically changed the face of British art with their precocious, unconventional and irreverent work which was based in popular culture, embracing new subject-matter and new materials. Jones's preference was for glamour and style, and his aesthetic centred on beautiful women visualised erotically and stereotypically as in glossy magazines, advertisements and cartoon strips. Underpinned with a great mastery of colour and a consummate painting technique, Jones's work fluctuates between painting and sculpture. On a flat canvas painted forms appear sculptural and his three-dimensional works are painterly. He uses colour to describe form, at times with graphic precision, or conversely with an energy and freedom of gesture which is close to direct expression. Similar developments are evident in his printmaking.
He lives and works in London.
