Though best known for his sculpture, British pop artist Allen Jones was nevertheless deeply familiar with lithography by the time he began his fellowship at Tamarind in 1966. From 1961 to 1963 he had taught lithography at Croydon College in England, using the medium to explore the sexual imagery that interested him in his three-dimensional work. While he employed a pop style, with clean lines and flat, illustrative imagery, he was not concerned with mass media as his subject matter. Instead, as in this suite of six lithographs, he preferred to use the female body in sardonic, and sometimes egregiously exploitative, ways.
