Pauline Boty (British 1938-1966)

One of the relatively few women artists to be involved with the Pop Art movement, Boty studied at Wimbledon School of Art and at the Royal College of Art, where she met and worked with the key figures from the movement.

After graduating in 1960 and before her tragically early death in 1966 at the age of only 28, her collages and large canvases were exhibited in a number of group shows and in her first solo exhibition was held at the Grabowski Gallery in 1963.

She featured with Derek Boshier, Peter Blake and Peter Philips in the BBC film Pop Goes the Easel in 1962. David Mellor exhibited Boty's work in his important show on the 60s at the Barbican in 1993 and again in a joined Anglo-French exhibition, held in Brighton in 1997.

The major retrospective exhibition was held at Whitford Fine Art and Mayor Gallery, London, Nov-Dec 1998
