Patrick Caulfield


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Patrick Caulfield, CBE (30 January 1936 – 29 September 2005) was an English painter and printmaker known for his pop art canvases.
Patrick Caulfield studied at the Chelsea School of Art in the late 1950s, and at the Royal College of Art from 1960 to 1963, where his fellow pupils included David Hockney and R. B. Kitaj. After he left, he returned to Chelsea as a teacher. In 1964 he exhibited at the New Generation show at London's Whitechapel Gallery, which resulted in him being associated with pop art.

From around the mid-1970s he began to incorporate more detailed, realistic elements into his work, After Lunch (1975) being one of the first examples. Still-life: Autumn Fashion (1978) contains a variety of different styles--some objects have heavy black outlines and flat colour, but a bowl of oysters is depicted more realistically, and other areas are executed with looser brushwork. Caulfield later returned to his earlier, more stripped-down, style of painting. Caulfield's paintings are figurative, often portraying a few simple objects in an interior. Typically, he uses flat areas of simple colour surrounded by black outlines. Some of his works are dominated by a single hue.

After Lunch, 1975, Tate Gallery. In 1987 Caulfield was nominated for the Turner Prize and in 1996 he was made a CBE. On 24 May 2004, a fire in a storage warehouse destroyed many works from the Saatchi collection, including one or more by Caulfield.

He died in 2005, and is buried in Highgate Cemetery. Those who have followed his style include Michael Craig-Martin and latterly Julian Opie.
