1970s Pop Art Paintings And Prints

1970s Pop Art paintings painted between 1970 to 1979, In terms of an established style this is considered by some as Doug Kemps "coming of age".

1970s Pop Art, The Evolution Of A Now Established Style

1970s pop art collection: Moving from Paradise ( a place in Gloucestershire) to Loughborough via Walthamstow. This was Doug’s “coming of age”, where there was a transition from the mainly abstract and geometric design that was now often moving to the backgrounds and the comic book style becoming representative as foreground characters.

The coupling of these characters with these abstract and geometric shapes made an impact and Doug’s style of art has continued to develop over the last 50 years. The painting, Billie Agent, (below) epitomises this transition and combination, some might even consider this painting being one of the seminal works of Doug’s newly adopted or, rather better to say, developed style.

Assigning Dates to Dougs 1970s Pop Art

Determining the date of completion of any particular piece of work sometimes can be rather vague, but determining the actual location where it was made is worse.

There are only two sure ways of determining when a piece was completed: Firstly, actually find it in storage or in someone’s collection, and secondly, by looking at the legend on the back, This also helps in confirming the title (at least at the time of production!)/

Lack of permanent useful studio space in the early days did not appear to greatly hinder the prolific production of works, although they appeared to be generally smaller in dimensions and, perhaps, a greater number of works on paper which, by their nature, are smaller anyway.
