Richard Hamilton was one of the most influential British artists of the twentieth century, often known as the ‘Father of Pop Art’. The Williamson Art Gallery & Museum, Birkenhead, will show an exhibition of his prints this summer, presented with Barbican International Enterprises in partnership with the Alan Cristea Gallery, the first showing of this touring exhibition outside London. The exhibition will feature over 40 works of great variety and traces themes in the artist’s work over 40 years: themes of protest, portraits, interiors and landscapes to provide an unparalleled insight into Hamilton’s creative process and his breadth of visual experimentation.

“Richard Hamilton is simply the most potent and poignant history painter of modern Britain: the greatest visual historian of a revolutionary age” (Jonathan Jones, catalogue introduction).
