Opening on the 13th of November, the Royal Academy will be exhibiting the work of Pop Art god Allen Jones. Showing a cross section of Jones’ work from his famed ‘furniture sculptures’, paintings of erotic legs and even story boards previously unseen created to plan many of his compositions, the exhibition will give a deep insight into one of the most fascinating artists to come out of the 20th century to explore sexuality.

Jones’ provocative paintings of high heeled legs sent out shockwaves into the art world as he addressed eroticism in a totally new way never before experienced in the 1960s. Fetishism and sado-masochism were placed right into focus and glamorised into the advertised style prevalent within Pop art creating utterly fresh ideas and art works.

 

The exhibition will run from Thursday November the 13th until Sunday January the 25th 2015.
