Richard Hamilton: The Late Works

Richard Hamilton: The Late Works
LONDON  •  The National Gallery  •  Ongoing

Just before his death, British artist Richard Hamilton (1922-2011) was at work on a major painting based on Honoré de Balzac’s short story Le Chef-d’œuvre inconnu (The Unknown Masterpiece). When it became clear he would not live to finish the work, Hamilton decided that the National Gallery exhibition – the first significant one since his death – would culminate in the initial presentation of the large-scale variations on this work, using computer-generated images over-painted by hand.
