Richard Hamilton, English pop artist, has died

He was 89.

Hamilton was the cornerstone of the movement, a mentor of David Hockney and Peter Blake.

His 1956 collage Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing? was the first Pop Art work from Britain to win international recognition. It hangs now in Tübingen, Germany.

He is seen here at the 197 Venice Biennale (photo: British Council).
