Pop Art. 50 Works of Art You Should Know

Серия: "-"

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. Artists used humor, provocation, and garish gestures to help dissolve the barriers between high and low culture. Over time, Pop Art developed into one of the most influential movements of the 20th century and many of it's works have achieved iconic status. This introduction to Pop Art focuses on fifty of the movement's most important works, and covers every major artist of the style, including David Hockney, Robert Indiana, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Robert Indiana, Claes Oldenburg, Ed Ruscha and Andy Warhol. Each work is featured on a beautifully illustrated double-page spread. An informative text highlights the work's classic characteristics as well as unusual aspects, it's significance in the Pop Art movement and it's influence on the history of contemporary art, and art in general. Including brief biographies of each artist, this book is a beautifully illustrated survey of Pop Art.
