Allen Jones’ reputation was established while still a student at the Royal College of Art in London in the 1960s, as part of a generation of young talented Pop artists. Over the past forty years his work has remained true to the depiction of popular culture, with much of his imagery being drawn from advertising and performance.

This exhibition will be a survey of Jones’ work spanning his entire career, including prints, paintings and the iconic figurative sculptures from the late 1960s up to the present day. The exhibition will also seek to demonstrate the enduring place of drawing in Jones’ creative process. His talents as a draughtsman are considerable and although infrequently seen, these drawings underpin every element of his artistic output.
