b. 1937 in Southampton, U.K.
Allen Jones is a painter, sculptor and printmaker; he is one of the key figures in British pop art and is best recognized for his sculptural works.
He studied at the Hornsey College of Art in London, England, between 1955 and 1961. Between 1961 and 1963, he taught at the Croydon College of Art.
Jones’s work in the early 1960s was heavily influenced by his readings of Nietzche, Freud and Jung. In 1969, Jones made his most infamous sculptures – Chair, Table and Hat Stand – as commentaries on three-dimensional illusionism and the female body as it exists in the male imagination. In the 1970s, Hoyland returned to a more painterly conception and playful stylization
in his works.
In 1986, Hoyland was elected Royal Academician by the Royal Academy. He lives and works in London, England.
