Biography:nbsp
The English artist Allen Jones, born in 1937, is regarded as one of the great stars of the international art scene.

Together with his friends R. B. Kitaj, Peter Philipps and David Hockney, his fellow students at the Royal College of Art, he took an interest in an art style that was just emerging at that time. This was the basis for his further artistic development.

He participated in the exhibition "Young Contemporaries", which resulted in the break-through of English Pop Art in 1961. After spending quite some time in New York, he developed his personal variation of Pop culture. His technique, which had been more on the side of painting, changed in the direction of a graphic style. His topics shifted from a soft eroticism to an aggressive, fetishistic style of presentation. It reached a high point when he created a series of life-size glass fiber figures of handcuffed women in tight boots and corsets posing as pieces of furniture. More recent works are variations on the topics of stage, dance and sports, situated in a field of tension between figurative and abstract expression. At the same time, he created several large-sized sculptures for public spaces. Since 1981 he has been a member of the Royal Academy London and a trustee of the British Museum.

His works featured in numerous one-man shows at renowned museums and galleries throughout the world and can be found in all major international public collections. In 1993 an exhibition reviewed "Pop Art" at the Royal Academy London, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, the Centro Reina Sofia, Madrid, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, in which his works were shown. In Germany, a retrospective of his works was shown at the Kunsthalle Darmstadt in 1996.
