"As Duchamp's chief British cheerleader, Richard Hamilton influenced not one, not two, but three generations of creatives. Pop art we have noted already. The best British art of the 1970s, from Richard Long to Gilbert & George, was infected, too, by Duchampian logic. As for Brit Art, with its passion for jokes and its obsession with the conceptual denouement, the line of descent that passes from Duchamp to it, via Hamilton, runs straight as a Roman road." -- Waldemar Januszczak

A rare Hamilton show at London's Serpentine Gallery brings together new work with some of his iconic reflections on pop and history. (Through April 25)
