Original dye-transfer with hand colouring on photographic paper.

Printed using a combination of screen printing inks and Marshall Oils, each is unique and it is understood approximately 150 examples only were produced for the exhibition at the Robert Fraser Gallery, London in 1969.

Based on an original painting of the same title from 1965, these postcard 'mini-paintings' were given away at the show by Hamilton and Fraser or mailed with invitations.
Richard Hamilton PortraitRichard Hamilton (1922-2011) was an English artist known for producing some of the earliest works of Pop Art. Though he used a wide variety of techniques during his career, his most recognizable works, such as Study for a Fashion Plate (1969), were done in collage. Hamilton began taking evening art classes at Saint Martin’s School of Art and then entered the Royal Academy at the age of 16, he was later expelled for not following the school’s regulations. Accepting an offer to teach at his old alma mater, Hamilton mentored a number of students during the late 1950s, including Peter Blake and David Hockney. Through mutual friends, Hamilton was introduced to Paul McCartney, and subsequently produced the cover art for The Beatles’ White Album (1968). Over the following decades, Hamilton focused on producing prints as well as incorporating new technologies, such as computer software, into his practice.
