Richard Hamilton: New Technology and Printmaking

Just what is it that makes today's homes so different? 1992 Richard Hamilton 1922-2011 Presented by the British Broadcasting Corporation 1993


18 March - 22 April 2000

Thirty-one works by Richard Hamilton, one of the world’s most respected artists living today can be seen in the Long Gallery. Known as the “father of British pop art”, Hamilton (b.1922) has been making prints since 1939. His manipulation of painted and photographic images by computer means that his prints remain as innovative in conception and execution now as they have always been. The examples on view at MK G, made between 1964 and 1998, reveal his sophisticated and highly individual style. Hamilton will be at MK G on the evening of 30 March for a discussion about his work as part of the Artists in Conversation at MK G series.
