This set of books follows the development of Pop, from its roots in the irreverence of Dada and Surrealism to its rise in popularity as an art form that celebrated the glamour and hedonism of the newly commercialized Western world. The first volume, Andy Warhol Pop Painter, examines the life and work of the movement’s most notorious names—and one of art’s most prolific geniuses. Its companion, Pop Art, studies the careers and cultural impacts of artists like Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, Andy Warhol, Peter Blake, and Richard Hamilton.
Includes two books. Andy Warhol Pop Art Painter, by Susan Goldman Rubin. Hardcover. 48 pages.
Tate Movements in Modern Art: Pop Art, by David McCarthy. Paperback. 80 pages.
