Appeals: The Serpentine Gallery
Saturday 05 December 1992
Red Jug and Lamp has a strong black background showing a central grey lamp surrounded by its yellow reflection: behind the lamp are shapes of red suggesting the jug. The print, which is on display at the exhibition, is signed and numbered by the artist and costs pounds 470. Patrick Caulfield studied at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art, with David Hockney and RB Kitaj. He was one of the most reluctant to have the term Pop Art applied to his work but it has remained with him ever since. His paintings have mainly centred on still-lifes, landscapes and interiors: their powerful austerity is emphasised by large expanses of solid colour and stark images, often depicted in black.
The Serpentine Gallery is an educational charity which displays seven exhibitions of contemporary art each year. It welcomes groups of students and organises practical workshops for children, young people and adults. The gallery's weekly talks, on Sundays, are open to the public and aim to bring contemporary visual art to a wider local and visiting audience in London. Although partly funded by the Arts Council and its local borough council, the gallery needs to raise money through donations to ensure its survival and to maintain its free admission policy.
