Explore the influence of international modernism and Marcel Duchamp on the work of Richard Hamilton (1922 – 2011).

Drawn from our outstanding collection of British Pop Art, the display includes some of Hamilton’s most celebrated works, including Hers is a Lush Situation (1958); Adonis in Y-Fronts (1963) and Swingeing London ’67 (1968).

An artist and teacher, Hamilton was fascinated by the question of what art could be and its relationship with consumer society. Alongside his own work, Hamilton also dedicated himself to the work of American-French artist Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968).

Hamilton helped to popularise Duchamp’s work and introduced him to a British audience in 1966 when he organised a retrospective of his work at the Tate Gallery. For this exhibition he also helped to recreate one of Duchamp’s most famous works, The Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors Even (1915 – 23).
