Pop

Works on Paper from 1962

There seems some mystery as to why these works have not been shown before, but I suppose the simple answer is that it has been purposeful on my part. My pure POP period was very brief in comparison to the span of works until now.

Derek Boshier brought to British Pop a strong satirical edge which distinguished his work from that of his fellow students at the Royal College of Art. His paintings of 1961-62 made frequent reference to current events, especially those with a political dimension such as the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union.
