The best works of one of the pioneers of pop art finally arrive in Madrid in the form of a retrospective exhibition. Richard Hamilton (London, 1922-2011) was a British painter who left school to work in an advertising agency. There he started his artistic journey, which would end up making him the father of pop art, thanks to his unique interpretation of mass culture.

This exhibition brings together more than 250 works produced between 1949 and 2010 and includes paintings, photographs, drawings and etchings, as well as works that resulted from Hamilton's experimentation with computer-generated images and collaborations with other artists. Pay special attention to the installations 'This Is Tomorrow', 'An Exhibit', 'Man, Machine and Motion' and 'Growth and Form', reconstructed for the first time for this show, which coincides with 'Mitos del Pop' at the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza.
