Richard Hamilton

A month after the National Gallery in London closes its exhibition Richard Hamilton: The Late Works, Tate Modern presents a full-career retrospective of the father of pop art. The exhibition covers early exhibition installations, such as his seminal Fun House of 1956, through to his final paintings in 2011. Le Chef-d’oeuvre inconnu – the now elegiac triptych of images — unfinished at Hamilton’s death — depicts the painters Courbet, Poussin and Titian surveying a 19th-century nude. It represents a moment in Balzac’s novella The Unknown Masterpiece.
