Some of them were realized expressly for the this exhibition, as the famous Believe it or not (1999), a work on board where parts of an emblematic mannequins come out from large fields of color (catalogue: AAVV, Allen Jones: Believe it or not, Galleria d'Arte Maggiore g.a.m., 1999). Maggiore g.a.m. curated and produced another solo show in 2002, Allen Jones, comprehensive of all the artist's production from 1966 to 2001: from mannequins to sculptures, from the paintings with large fields of color of the 1960s to the more lyrical echoes of the last period. The exhibition was split in two parts: one in the Maggiore g.a.m.'s historical exhibition space in Bologna and one in the Institutional venue of Palazzo dei Sette in Orvieto, with the patronage of the Umbria Region (catalogue: AAVV, Allen Jones.
