          Acrylic paint and rope on canvas. Purchased by Tate in 1999

          In the late 1990s the National Gallery, London commissioned twenty-four artists to produce work in response to the gallery’s collection. Hemingway Never Ate Here was Caulfield’s contribution to the exhibition. The central motif is A Cup of Water and a Rose on a Silver Plate by the seventeenth century painter Fancisco de Zurbaran. The bull’s head, painted from an actual stuffed head that Caulfield hired in London, was included after he visited a bar off the Plaza Mayor in Madrid in 1998 where a similar one was hung.

          Artist details

          English painter and printmaker, Patrick Caulfield studied at Chelsea School of Art and at the Royal College of Art, just one year below the students identified as the originators of pop art. In the early 1960s Caulfield's painting was characterised by flat images of objects against unmodulated areas of colour. Gradually his attention shifted to architectural elements. During the 1980s he again turned to a more stripped-down aesthetic, particularly in large paintings with a vivid sense of place.
