British Pop Artist Allen Jones’ Exhibition opens at the Royal Academy

Allen Jones’ first major exhibition opens in the Burlington Gardens exhibition rooms of the Royal Academy on November 13, 2014. Hailed as a key figure of British Pop Art in the sixties, nearly 100 works are being exhibited some never shown before, which chart his development over five decades. Drawings, sculptures, some three-dimensional, maquettes, and furniture focus on his depictions of the female figure up until the present day.

Jones’ reputation was established at the Royal College of Art, London where his contemporaries included David Hockney and Derek Bolshier. The table that brought him into the limelight was created at a time when women’s feminism was being brought into question although apparently it hadn’t been his intention to shock but rather make a radical statement. His work has also been influenced by frequent visits to America. He has been a member of the Royal Academy since 1984.
