LONDON (AP) _ Patrick Caulfield, an artist noted for his spare, precise studies of interiors and still life, died Thursday in London, according to the Waddington Gallery, which has represented the artist for more than 30 years. He was 69.
Caulfield came up in the 1960s generation of artists, and his bold images were often associated with Pop Art.
However, the catalogue for a 1999 exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London said Caulfield's work ``addresses the central concerns of European painting: how light falls, how space is organized, how to reconcile different ways of looking at things.''
Caulfield told an interviewer in 1999 that his interest in interiors developed in art school as a reaction against social realism.
