Richard Hamilton

Richard Hamilton's work showed the view of a standard living room back in the 1960's showing the different roles featured by men and women with the obvious use of advertising however there is a lot more that meets the eye with this piece as the male figure in this piece was a celebrity at this time and his body was meant to be idolised by other males. Also the female figure on the stairs is a stereotypical view of women as this shows her as a housewife, with this image it also captures the technological advancements that where taking place like 'going to the moon' and at this time TV's where just being introduced within households.
