Prints form an integral part of Allen Jones's creative processes and are as important to him as painting and sculpture. It is therefore scarcely surprising that, ever since his student days, he has produced a steady stream of graphic works, mainly lithographs, but also screenprints and some etchings. Centring on the human figure, Jones's images exude a guilt-free eroticism and an unrestrained joie de vivre rare in British art. Sometimes misinterpreted as sexist, this imagery, like that of Derek Boshier, David Hockney, R. B. Kitaj and Peter Phillips, Jones's contemporaries at the Royal College of Art, London, in the early 1960s, is both a eulogy and a critique of consumerism.
This book, published to coincide with a travelling exhibition of the artist's prints, is the first complete catalogue of Jones's work in this field. Containing reproductions of all the artist's graphics, many of them photographed specially for the occasion, it celebrates over thirty-five years of a major artist's activity as a master printmaker.
