Pauline Boty - Pallant House Gallery

Pauline Boty, The Only Blonde In The World, 1963
Pauline Boty: Pop Artist and Woman is at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester until 9 February 2014.
Boty was one of the stars of British Pop Art - alongside Peter Blake, David Hockney, Derek Boshier, Peter Phillips and others. Her premature death, at 28 in 1966, and the chauvinism of art history mean that she is less well known than she should be. Hopefully this exhibition (first shown earlier this year at Wolverhampton Art Gallery) will help to remedy this.
Read an interesting spat about the show's title and its curatorial perspective between Fisun Güner and the exhibition curator Dr Sue Tate here. Read a review of the Wolverhampton showing by Alastair Sooke and an article by Robin Stummer.
