Just what was it that made yesterday's homes so different, so appealing?

This print is based on a small collage from 1956 that Hamilton made for “This is Tomorrow,” an exhibition of the Independent Group at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in London. An icon of early British Pop art, the densely composed collage teems with images clipped from magazines according to the artist’s prescribed inventory: Man, Woman, Humanity, History, Food, Newspapers, Cinema, TV, Telephone, Comics (picture information), Words (textual information), Tape recording (aural information), Cars, Domestic Appliances, and Space. In 2004, after further advances in ink-jet printing, Hamilton made an “upgraded” version of this print on an Apple Macintosh (MMA 2004.527).
