2014 is the year of Richard Hamilton. With shows at Tate, ICA and Alan Cristea, we’re looking back at the father of British Pop Art


RICHARD HAMILTON | "Richard William Hamilton CH (24 February 1922 – 13 September 2011) was a British painter and collage artist. His 1955 exhibition Man, Machine and Motion (Hatton Gallery, Newcastle) and his 1956 collage, Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?, produced for the This Is Tomorrow exhibition of the Independent Group in London, are considered by critics and historians to be among the earliest works of pop art."
