This display features screenprints by British Pop artists such as Richard Hamilton, Peter Blake, Ronald Kitaj, David Hockney, Joe Tilson, Allen Jones and Eduardo Paolozzi. The large-scale work Leaners 1989 by artists Gilbert and George will also be included, as will the 1997  'Screen' portfolio of prints made by 12 London artists.
