Allen Jones

Pour les Lèvres, 1965
(from 11 Pop Artists, Volume II)

In 1965, the legendary 11 Pop Artists portfolio's including Lichtenstein and Warhol were published simultaneously in three volumes for an exhibition Pop and Op, which toured the United Sates from 1965 to 1967. Lichtenstein has said that he "thinks his 11 Pop Artists prints were his first true "Pop" prints, the first ones that were really done as prints." These images that Lichtenstein created for the portfolios including Sweet Dreams Baby or aka the "Pow" print, cemented his place in Pop Art and were themes that he continued to explore throughout his career. Signed in pencil and numbered from the edition of 200. Printed by Knickerbocker Machine and foundry Inc., New York. Published by Original editions, New York. This particular work of art is in the MOMA Collection.

(British, b. 1937) Allen Jones is a painter, sculptor and printmaker. He studied at Hornsey College of Art, London and later at the Royal College of Art, London from 1959–60. Motivated by the theories of Jung and Nietzsche, Jones began with paintings to depict fused male and female couples as metaphors of the creative act. While living in New York, he discovered a rich fund of imagery in sexually motivated popular illustration of the 1940s and 1950s. The full extent of his Pop sensibility emerged in sexually provocative fibreglass sculptures such as Chair 1969, life-size images of women as furniture with fetishist and sado- masochist overtones. In the mid 1970s, he returned to a more painterly conception in canvases such as Santa Monica Shores 1977.
