Alan Cristea, who worked with Patrick Caulfield from the early 1970s until the death of the artist in 2005, presents a retrospective survey of the artist’s original prints in his gallery from 5 June – 13 July 2013 to coincide with Tate Britain’s retrospective exhibition of Caulfield’s paintings.

London Exhibitions Patrick Caufield. Alan Cristea GalleryAs well as eleven paintings, Tate owns all 113 screenprints made by Caulfield between 1964 and 1999 – his entire printed works. All of these prints are illustrated and documented in the official catalogue raisonné published by the Alan Cristea Gallery in 2000.

The exhibition begins with the artist’s first print, Ruins, 1964, which was commissioned by the ICA in London as part of a portfolio of 14 prints by artists such as Paolozzi, Hamilton Hockney etc. The portfolio was instrumental in raising awareness of screenprinting as a legitimate fine art medium and in promoting the reputations of young artists who were to become of major importance in the development of contemporary art in Britain.

Although both the portfolio and Caulfield himself were identified with Pop Art, he consistently rejected the tag, feeling that his work lay in a European tradition running from Delacroix through Cezanne to Cubism and artists such as Gris, Braque and Picasso. Indeed his last painting, now owned by Tate, is a homage to Georges Braque, and his last print, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon vues de Derriere, 1999, constituted a tongue in cheek homage to one of Picasso’s most famous paintings. When Alan Cristea asked him why he had chosen the subject, he famously answered “I have been haunted by that painting throughout my life and I needed to exorcise the ghost”.

About the Artist

Patrick Caulfield was born in London, UK in 1936. He began his studies at Chelsea School of Art in 1956, joining the School one year group below many of the originators of Pop art. He later attended the Royal College of Art in the early 60s, where he studied alongside David Hockney and Allen Jones. Caulfield’s far-reaching influence can be seen in the practice of artists such as Julian Opie, as well as in the worlds of graphic design and illustration.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
