Not yet rated | write a review
The most important and best-loved artists of the Pop art movement are gathered in this accessible book of painting, photography, film, and sculpture. When it emerged in the 1950s, the Pop art movement presented a challenge to fine art with its incorporation of images from television, newspapers, and advertising, dissolving the barriers between high and low culture. Over time, Pop developed into one of the most influential movements of the 20th century and many of its works have achieved iconic status. This introduction to Pop art focuses on 50 of the movement''s most important works and covers every major artist associated with the style, including David Hockney, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol. Each work is featured on a beautifully illustrated spread. An informative text highlights the work''s classic characteristics, its unusual aspects, and its significance in the Pop movement. Including brief biographies of the artists, this book is a beautifully illustrated survey of Pop art.
