Hamilton is here pictured with his work Interior II (1964), one of two paintings to feature a silk screen print of the actress Patricia Knight based on a still from the film Shockproof (1948). In Interior II, Hamilton sought to recast the period setting of Interior I (1964) in the contemporary, including an Yves Klein monochrome and an Eames chair. Hamilton produced a number of works picturing interiors during his career that defy a straightforward narrative reading. He described the interior as '… a museum, with the lingering residues of decorative styles that an inhabited space collects'.
