Location Description:

Richard Smith was among the generation of artists emerging from the Royal College of Art in the 1960s in what became known as the 'Pop Art' movement. He was known for his three-dimensional, box-like paintings with references to commercial packaging. Since the 1970s his work has become increasingly abstract but retains the device of using shaped, often kite-like, constructions. He moved to New York in 1978 and now prefers a delicately painted, flat surface with a palette of muted colour.
