About the work
SMS #1: Richard Hamilton, A Postal Card for Mother, 1968 by Richard Hamilton. Fold-out print. 2000-piece edition. Sepia picture postcard depicting a crowded British beach - opens out to reveal 8 black and white photographs of the same scene. The SMS Portfolios were a collaboration between William Copley & Dmitri Petrov which they published through their Letter Edged in Black Press, working with some of the most important artists of the twentieth century. The aim was to produce a new form of art journal that would bypass traditional institutions to distribute the artist's work directly to its audience instead.
About the artist
Richard Hamilton (1922 – 2011) created some of the most important and enduring works of any British modern painter. It is often claimed that he invented pop art in 1956, with his most famous work "Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?" In 1992 the Tate Gallery in London showed a retrospective of his work and he represented Great Britain at the Venice Biennale in 1993 (Born in London, he lived and worked in the city throughout his life).
