Richard Hamilton Art

British, 1922-2011

Hamilton was born in Pimlico, London on 24 February 1922. He did an apprenticeship for an electrical components firm, during which time he began to take evening classes at Saint Martin’s School of Art and the Westminster School of Art. In 1938, he enrolled in the Royal Academy of Arts. His studies here were unfortunately cut short the following year as he joined the army as a technical draughtsman for the duration of World War II.
Following the war, Hamilton spent two years at the Slade School of Art, University College, London. Hamilton begun to exhibit his art at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), and teaching at the Central School of Art and Design from 1952. The first major exhibition of Hamilton’s paintings was shown at the Hanover Gallery, London in 1955. In 1993, Hamilton represented Great Britain at the Venice Bienale and was awarded the Golden Lion. He has been the subject of several major exhibitions at the Tate Gallery in London, notably in 1970 and 1992. Other retrospectives include at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York in 1973, MACBA in Barcelona, Museum Ludwig in Cologne and the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. In 2010, the Serpentine Gallery presented Hamilton’s work “Modern Moral Matters”, an exhibition which largely focused on Hamilton’s political and protest works. Hamilton has been showcased in the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s Richard Hamilton: Pop Art Pioneer 1922-2011, and the National Gallery’s “Richard Hamilton: The Late Works” opened in 2012. Hamilton has been awarded with the John Moores Painting Prize (1969), the Talens Prize International (1970), the Leone d’Oro (1993), the Arnold Bode Prize (1997) and has been made a Member of the Order of the Companions of Honour (CH) in 2010. The Tate Gallery in London has the largest repository of Hamilton’s work, but he is collected worldwide including at the Alan Cristea Gallery and the Museo Ncional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía.
