Pop Art Steps This Way

'Luxe, Came et Volupte' by Allen Jones, 1978


It was in 1965 that Allen Jones took his first steps towards being an British iconic pop artist. It all started with a trip to an American casino, which inspired the creation of a sexualised slot machine standing on the legs of a female mannequin. Legs went on to feature in many of Jones's work, such as First Step (1966) and 'Luxe, Came et Volupte (1978).

These and many other examples of his work will shortly be on display at the Royal Academy of Art. From the 13th November - 25th January, they will be holding a retrospective on Allen Jones, tracing the connections and themes of his sculptures and paintings across the decades.

Tickets to the exhibit are 11.50 for adults, !0.50 seniors, and free for under sixteens. It will also feature talks with the curator, the artist himself
and a discussion on one of his most controversial pieces of furniture, titled Chair.
