Richard Hamilton: IntrospectiveRichard Hamilton: Introspective

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Phillip Spectre.

Richard Hamilton: Introspective traces the heterogeneous trajectory of Richard Hamilton’s life and work as he blazed a trail through pop art and beyond. A companion piece to the 2003 publication Retrospective—a catalogue raisonné in which images were reproduced without commentary—this book was conceived by Hamilton during a period of reduced mobility due to a broken hip and was left unfinished at the time of his death. It is published as Hamilton left it in 2011, with blank pages and pagination.

Richard Hamilton (1922–2011) was an English painter and collage artist whose 1955 exhibition Man, Machine and Motion, along with his 1956 collage Just What Is it That Makes Today’s Home So Different, So Appealing? are often considered by critics and historians to be the earliest works of pop art. He entered the Royal Academy of Arts at the age of 16, and later taught at his old alma mater, mentoring a number of students including Peter Blake and David Hockney. Through mutual friends, Hamilton was introduced to Paul McCartney, subsequently producing the cover art for the Beatles’ White Album (1968).

Richard Hamilton & Sigfried Giedion: ReaperRichard Hamilton & Sigfried Giedion: Reaper

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Carson Chan, Fredi Fischli, Niels Olsen, Linda Schädler, Filine Wagner. Text by Carson Chan, Esther Choi, Kevin Lotery, Spyros Papapetros, Fanny Singer, Hadas Steiner, Filine Wagner.

The starting point of this publication is the conceptual encounter between English Pop artist Richard Hamilton (1922–2011) and Swiss historian and architecture critic Sigfried Giedion (1888–1968), famous for his landmark 1941 book, Space, Time & Architecture.

In 1949 Richard Hamilton created the Reaper print series as a reaction to Giedion’s 1948 book Mechanization Takes Command, in which he describes the mechanization of everyday life. Reproducing Hamilton’s complete Reaper series alongside illustrations created by Giedion plus related images, this publication brings together seven essays by renowned international scholars. Among the many topics discussed are Hamilton’s early works and exhibition installation practice, postwar British biotechnology and architecture, “Hippie Modernism” and the visual strategy of Giedion’s books.

Richard Hamilton: Modern Moral MattersRichard Hamilton: Modern Moral Matters

Serpentine Gallery

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Julia Peyton-Jones, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh.

With his memorably titled 1956 collage "Just What is it that Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing?", British artist Richard Hamilton (born 1922) heralded the British Pop revolution; and with his 1967 Swingeing London series of prints, which depicted the arrest of Mick Jagger and Robert Fraser, Hamilton's art entered the general public consciousness. But unlike so many Pop artists, Hamilton was never an uncritical or ambivalent advocate of postwar society, and he has often agitated directly against it, producing a great deal of openly political, satirical work that assaults both consumer culture at large and more immediate political events. This monograph, published for Hamilton's 2010 exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in London (his first exhibition since 1992), brings together Hamilton's famous "protest" paintings as well as newer political works and features essays by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh and Michael Bracewell.

Richard HamiltonRichard Hamilton

Prints and Multiples 1939-2002

Published by Richter Verlag.
Artwork by Richard Hamilton. Edited by Dieter Schwarz. Text by Stephen Coppel, Eitenne Lullin.

Regularly referred to as the father of Pop Art, Richard Hamilton was an early, lively, and satirical discoverer of the art of the everyday consumer good. In the mid-50s, like many artists who were to follow in his wake, Hamilton discovered the mythic and epic elements that lurked in the contemporary world of imagery and integrated these found objects into his work. If Hamilton is best known for his collages--most especially his 1956 Just What Is It That Makes Today's Homes So Different, So Appealing?--he has maintained a consistent interest in the art of printmaking throughout his career. His first exhibition, in 1950, featured etchings; in the early 60s he pioneered the use of silkscreens; and since 1988 he has created a world of images via the computer. This volume collects 64 years of the artist's prints on the occasion of his 80th birthday.
