Date of work
English painter and printmaker, Patrick Caulfield studied at Chelsea School of Art and at the Royal College of Art, one year below the students identified as 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.
