  • About the artist
    Patrick Caulfield, painter and printmaker, was born in London. He studied at Chelsea School of Art from 1956-60, and at the Royal College of Art from 1960-63. He was associated with Pop art, the style that emerged in the mid 1950s in England and America and had its origins in the mass media and consumerism. In his paintings and prints of domestic objects, Caulfield uses a deliberately anonymous style, with an even, bold black line and flat colour, bring wit and irony to his simplified presentation of the everyday. Caulfield taught at Chelsea School of Art from 1963-71. His work has been exhibited all over the world. Retrospectives have been held at the Tate (1981), the Serpentine (1992-93) and the Hayward (1999) galleries in London.
