In the late ’50s and ’60s, American painter Roy Lichtenstein became one of the most important exponents of Pop Art—that movement which transformed products of mass consumption and the entertainment industry into subjects for art. Around the same time, Lichtenstein’s contemporary Jasper Johns was helping to define the movement using wax-based paint, plaster relief, collage, and even commonplace objects such as brooms and rulers in his paintings. This two-volume bundle explores these men—widely considered to be two of the most important artists of the 20th century.
