Patrick Caulfield, b.1936

Menu for Cavendish Hotel, London1976

Patrick Caufield entered the Royal College of Art in 1960, joining a body of students which included David Hockney, Allen Jones and R.B. Kitaj, and yet of this extraordinary group, it is still Caufield’s work which exerts the strongest influence of new generations of artists.
The striking black line technique that Caufield developed at the Royal College has proved to be a remarkably versatile pictorial device, allowing him to play a dizzyingly amount of visual games, whilst retaining his distinctive style.

About the Artist

Patrick Caulfield 1936–2006

English painter and printmaker Patrick Caulfield entered the Royal College of Art in 1960 where his contemporaries included David Hockney, Allen Jones and R.B. Kitaj. The striking black line technique he developed at the Royal College proved to be a versatile pictorial device which he retained in his flat, figurative works that often portray a few simple objects in an interior. Caulfield was nominated for the Turner prize in 1987 and was made a CBE in 1996. — View Artist »
