Girl in a Doorway (1969)


Caulfield was a leading figure among the younger British artists of the 1960s. He was influenced by Pop Art and developed a highly distinctive figurative style, using heavy black outlines to define flat areas of pure colour. Caulfield eliminated any sense of tonality or depth in his painting and the ambitious scale of his work and restrained use of colour show affinities with the abstract painting of his contemporary John Hoyland.
