Bryan Ferry on the recently deceased Richard Hamilton, one of the founders of “pop”:

I was fortunate to be taught by Richard Hamilton in 1964, my first year at the fine art department of Newcastle University. From then on Richard was a great inspiration, both as an artist, and as a personality. Frighteningly intellectual, he seemed to validate my romantic leanings towards American culture and he revealed how poetic and mysterious the modern world could be. As a teacher he taught by example, and his restless enquiring spirit I have tried to emulate in my own work as a musician.
