Entertaining and provocative in equal measure, Allen Jones RA was at the forefront of the British Pop Art movement in the early 1960s, alongside Royal College of Art contemporaries David Hockney RA, Derek Boshier and Peter Phillips.
Jones has been hugely influential, not just in the art world but across fashion, graphic design, film and music. This book explores the range of his 50-year career, focusing not just on sculptures but also on works in watercolour, lithography and painting. While best-known for highly sexualised imagery, particularly the women as furniture series, this volume reveals an artist deeply influenced by European Modernism, whose works possess an innate sense of humour and exuberant use of colour. Alongside engaging analyses of Jones' place in the canon of twentieth-century art, this volume seeks to reappraise feminist reactions to Jones from a contemporary perspective, exploring his continuous preoccupation with androgynous and transgender forms.
