This autumn the Royal Academy showcases a major exhibition of Allen Jones’ work, the first in the UK since 1995. Allen Jones RA spans the artist’s career from the 1960’s to present, comprising almost 100 works across paintings and sculpture. Highlights include the iconic furniture works from the late 60’s and new works specially created for the exhibition. Jones was a key figure in British pop art in the 60’s, and is renowned for his controversial works surrounding the female form, gender boundaries and erotica. Arranged into key sequences and themes, key pieces in the exhibition are Hat Stand (1969) Table (1969) and Chair (1969) along with more recent works such as Refrigerator (2002). —Emily Cater
