Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing?
Just what is it that makes today’s homes so different, so appealing? (1956) is a collage by English Artist Richard Hamilton.
It is remarkable because, despite its early date, it looks like a sort of index or compendium of Pop Art’s chief characteristics and motifs, featuring pin-up girls, advertisements, comic books and so on.
At the time, though, in 1956, it would be several years before the phenomenon of Pop Art was recognized as a new, cohesive international movement.
It was the first work of pop art to achieve iconic status.
The work is now in the collection of the Kunsthalle Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany.
