Allen Jones

Allen Jones is a controversial Britain pop artist, best known for his sculptures, paintings and prints. His unconventional, satirical and boldly inventive work was anchored in popular culture and embraced a wide range of new subject-matters and materials. Jones’ aesthetic centers on glamour and beautiful women, often visualizing stereotypes as in advertisements, magazines or cartoon strips. His most famous works Hatstand, Table and Chair, are  fibreglass “fetish” mannequins that depict women as furniture. The so-called forniphilic series rocketed Jones to fame, whilst making him an enemy to feminists. Enabled by consummate painting skills, Allen Jones’s work fluctuates between sculpture and painting. His three-dimensional works are painterly, whilst his painted forms appear sculptural.

English, born 1937 in Southampton
