Painter and sculptor Allen Jones was a seminal—and controversial—member of the British Pop art movement; he's renowned for highly sexual figurative works that raise questions about the representation and objectification of women. Jones rose to infamy in the 1960s with a series of sculptures that depicted women as furniture, posed for submission and clad in fetishwear. Feminists derided these pieces, yet the female form remained Jones's primary subject. He has made photographs—notably of Kate Moss in a gold breastplate of his design—and stylized oil paintings, watercolors, and prints that reference fashion, dancing, and cabaret. Jones has exhibited in London, Zurich, Hong Kong, Shanghai, St. Louis, and Lisbon. His work sells for millions on the secondary market and belongs in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Stedelijk Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Nagaoka Museum, among other institutions.
