Exhibition Overview

The internationally acclaimed British artist Richard Hamilton (b. 1922), one of the founders of Pop art in London, first studied printmaking as a teenager and continues his experiments today at the age of eighty-seven. This selection of some twenty-six works presents Hamilton’s groundbreaking forays into a variety of print media, from traditional intaglio to digital techniques, as he explores subjects derived from portraiture, the history of art, and the writings of James Joyce (1882–1941).
