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.
