America’s master of Pop Art silk-screen technique is showcased in England’s oldest gallery. This will be the first UK exhibition of works from the Bank of America Collection including 80 works from 13 portfolios from the early 1960s through to the mid-1980s.
On display will be some of the artist’s most famous images alongside some that are less familiar. Iconic portraits of Muhammad Ali and Marilyn Monroe will hang amongst surprises like 1981’s Myths and 1979’s Space Fruit: Still Lifes, echoing subject matter found in the Gallery’s own permanent collection. These dazzlingly decorative prints, hung densely packed like a Pop Rococo ‘print room’, will create a psychedelic feast of colour and image.
